Fear Must Not Win:
Finding Peace, Confidence, and Courage in Challenging Times
The world is full of things to fear—disease, war, economic instability, devasting weather events, personal tragedies, and more—and people are living afraid with what seems like no way out. Bishop Mark Steven Filkey, however, offers a deep understanding of fear and how to defeat its insidious tendrils with God’s strength.
“Perhaps you’re facing what appears to be an impossible test or challenge, and it is provoking feelings of anxiety or dread within you. Or maybe you just need to conquer fear itself,” he says in Fear Must Not Win: Finding Peace, Confidence, and Courage in Challenging Times. “Here is the good news: you can do it! You can be equipped to stand against and defeat every challenging giant that threatens to break you and steal your God-given dreams and destiny.”
Filkey, founder and senior pastor of WestCoast World Outreach Church in Stockton, California, offers readers a thorough look at how to confront our fears, sources of fear, and principles for fearfree living. He addresses irrational fears, trauma-based fear, and entrenched fears, as well as
encourages readers to stand strong in the confidence, strength, and power of God.

Bishop Gary McIntosh
Far too often, the church in America is only like a visitor center. It’s safe, it’s warm, and it’s comfortable. But we’re missing the power of Jesus, the presence of Jesus, and the excitement of following Jesus because we’re playing it safe! The American “trinity” is comfort, pleasure, and success. And one of our biggest idols is safety. Consequently, we don’t want to talk about or face our fears. Preachers often ask, “If you died tonight, do you know where you’re going?” I think Jesus would ask a different question: “What if you don’t die tonight—how are you going to live tomorrow?” In Fear Must Not Win, Pastor Mark Filkey does a brilliant job of addressing these issues, helping believers to escape the prison of fear and walk in their God-given victory. Read this book and let Pastor Mark help you beat—defeat—the scared inside you!
