Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate by Debora Coty is the latest book I’ve received from Litfuse for reviewing.
This is a book addressing fears of all sorts, with sections geared towards internal feelings sorts of fears (like rejection), external fears (like spiders), and faceless fears (like death). It also has a section about the various elements of the armor of God, and how they relate to dealing with fears.
I underestimated this book at first. It’s a very cute looking book, with all of the pages being pink with white polka dots… which I think helped me expect this to be sort of a fluffy feel good gift type of book. It also has a funny and very conversational tone, with lots and lots of real life stories and examples all the way through, which also helped create that impression at first.
But, it actually does go pretty deep, and address the topic of fear in a real way. It also does well at showing that fears can be addressed without taking the easy road of just making them seem trivial something that can just easily be cast aside by logic.
It’s a good solid book on dealing with fear of any sort. Don’t let the pretty packaging fool you into not taking it seriously.
