Breaking Free from Fear

By: Kay Arthur

 

Breaking Free from Fear is a six-week Bible study that covers many aspects of fear.  Topics include fear of the Lord, man, the future, “what ifs” and death.  Each week begins with an introduction paragraph and an observation section where the leader instructs the group to mark-up passages with crosses, triangles, underlines, etc.  The studies include scriptures, discussion questions and a summary.  The format may work for many groups as it is designed to take forty minutes and there is no homework.  The study is meant to be completed with the group.  However, if someone wanted to do a more in depth study they could certainly do so.  The scriptures are printed on the sides of the pages which will save some time looking up scriptures.

I thought this was a good Bible study as it addressed many fears that so many of us battle each day.  I also liked the format of the weekly studies.  I personally do not care for the marking up of the passages but that does not impact the study material.  I would recommend this for a group or even individual study.  Please see below for links to additional resources regarding this book.
