Drawing on the teachings of religious and secular literature and on the true stories of people who have faced their fears, Kushner helps us to see that fear can present us with extraordinary opportunities--to connect with our emotions, rethink our values, and change our lives, and the world, for the better.
First words -- The Eleventh Commandment : don't be afraid -- The terror that comes in the darkness : the fear of terrorism -- God was not in the hurricane : the fear of natural disaster -- Suddenly nothing is the same : the fear of rapid change -- A world without people : the fear that humanity will destroy itself -- Loss of job, loss of love : the fear of rejection -- Can seventy be the new fifty? : the fear of growing old -- The world is a narrow bridge : the fear of death -- Conquering fear : hope and courage are the will of God.
