If you want to build a faith that stands strong through troubled times, you cannot afford to ignore Holy Fear. In The Awe of God, John Bevere invites us to take a fresh look at what it means to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. This healthy, holy, and largely forgotten virtue is the uncommon path to a more fulfilled and fruitful life. This book is designed to be read slowly and intentionally. At the end of each of the 42 chapters are five tools to help you deepen your understanding and apply what the Spirit of God is teaching you.
