Publisher's Summary

Many Christians have never understood the fear of the Lord, which builds passion and intimacy into their relationship with god and makes their lives real and pure. In this rerelease of his book, John Bevere dispels the false understanding of god. Understanding why and how to fear god is the beginning of knowing Him as He yearns to be known. In his lovingly confrontational style, Bevere challenges believers to reverence God anew in their worship, prayers, and daily living. This book will inform and encourage believers to intimately know god like never before.

As stated earlier, should be required reading!

Other than the Bible John Bevere's books should be required reading for every Christian and certainly for anyone who is in the ministry full time. His insight into scripture is phenomenal and the truth he speaks through God's Holy Word touches you to the core of your soul. I recommend this book to all believers who are looking to go deeper in their relationship with God.

This book needs to be listened to several times.

You need more than one listen to unlock the wealth of wisdom in this book. So far I have listened to it three times. Each time more insight is unlocked in me and I am able to get a deeper comprehension of the truths that the Bevere points out.

A Half Truth.

The author has not delivered the whole message of what it means to fear God. The word translated "fear" in many versions of the Bible comes from the Hebrew word yirah which has a range of meaning in the Scriptures. Sometimes it refers to the fear we feel in anticipation of some danger or pain, but it can also can mean "awe" or "reverence." In this latter sense, yirah includes the idea of wonder, amazement, mystery, astonishment, gratitude, admiration, and even worship. The "fear of the LORD" therefore includes an overwhelming sense of the glory, worth, and beauty of the One True God. Unfortunetly the author clings to fear and dread.

The Fear of the Lord has changed my life

This book was the answer to my prayer of wanting to know God more intimately. It also opened my eyes to the truth about the fear of God and sparked a hunger in me to pursue Him more. This book is a must for every believer.

Discover the greatness of God

It's a brilliant and bold book. It stirs the heart for more of God and brings balance to the distorted, one-sided messages we mostly hear from pulpits these days. Much needed message for the global chuch!

The fear of God!

A very good revelation of the fear of God. Throughout the bible from old testament to new testament. The fear of God is clearly shown by John Bevere as not being afraid of God but fear of being without God!

Highly recommended!

I found this book very helpful.
It opened my eyes to a fresh perspective and understanding of the fear of the LORD.

I think anyone who is seeking to go deeper with God should read this book and also take the time to consider what it's sharing and the implications.

I highly recommend it.

Great book

This book was read by someone who’s voice was a joy to listen to. Some narrators don’t do the book justice, but this one was great

Great content from John Bevere and definitely challenged me on how I view the Lord and to give him hothead respect and honour he deserves. The fear of displeasing the Lord is definitely a different way for me to look at situations and make the right corrections in my heart and my attitude.
