Euichang Kim focuses upon the phrase “the fear of God”, drawn from 2 Corinthians' exhortation to reconcile with God. As opposed to these words appearing from no particular source, Kim points to the wider contexts of Old Testament passages quoted by Paul, and demonstrates that God's eschatological promises – in particular his coming judgment, his promise to redeem his people, and the prospect of a new covenant – are intertwined with this motif of “fear”. Beginning with an analysis of the meaning of fear in both the Old Testament and the New, Kim proceeds to the context of fear within 2 Corinthians, Scripture, the writings of Second Temple Judaism and the very eschatology of Paul, suggesting that it stems from an awareness of God's judgment to come and serves to motivate righteous behavior. Kim finally argues that, in the context of 2 Corinthians, the “fear of God” functions as the proper response to God's saving acts in Christ, and provides motivation for believers to pursue a holy life in anticipation of the eschatological judgment to come.

The book “Why faith, Why fear” came about as a result of a man seeking for unanswered questions in his life; from his youth to his adulthood, he discovered the power to overcome all his predicaments through faith in God and his word (the Bible).Life as we all know is full of uncertainties and an unknown future and as a result of this, we are inclined to fear and worry. People are always seeking for answers and will keep seeking in places and in things that cannot provide the right answers and solutions they need. This book offers the requisite information that will bring a transformation in the area of overcoming fear.“We don’t faith and we don’t fear”, why? This is because both faith and fear are in realms. Faith operates in the realm of God and fear operates in the realm of the devil and this is negative fear. Some examples include the following; fear of the unknown, fear of death, fear of sickness, fear of bondage, and fear of poverty. “Fear is the absence of faith” and this book presents you with a clear biblical perspective on how to overcome fear with faith. Hopefully, you flow alongside me and discover this biblical truth. God richly bless you as you patiently read this book.

How do human emotions arise, what functions do they serve, what is their evolutionary background, how do they relate to behaviour and the brain? These questions are put, and answered, in relation to the emotion of fear in this, the second edition of professor Gray's extremely well known book, first published in 1971. In this edition, the text has been extensively modified and brought up-to-date, but the book maintains the style and general argument of the first edition. The author's approach in this book is from a biological standpoint; he emphasises the evidence that has accumulated from experiments by psychologists, ethologists, physiologists and endocrinologists. Although a lot of this evidence has been obtained from animal studies, it throws light on the psychology and physiology of fear in Man. Differences between individuals in their susceptibility to fear are treated with as much attention as the common factors are.

Increasingly, risk and fear are experienced, portrayed and discussed as globalized phenomena, particularly since 9/11.

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear. They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors. Wouldn't it be great to walk out? Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, and doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, when you could trustmore and fear less. Can you imagine your life without fear? The booklet contains Chapter 1 of Fearless with additional content.
