Countless Christians battle intimidation, which is camouflaged and subtle. Many feel the effects–depression, confusion, lack of faith–without knowing its root. Bevere guides readers below the surface to see the roots of intimidation. Readers will understand why it is hard to say no, why the fear confrontation and avoid conflict, and why they focus on pleasing others. Readers will learn to identify intimidation and know how to break its hold. Bevere explains how the fear of God keeps us from a life of ungodliness and produces confidence and boldness. Bevere advises, “Walk in your own God-given authority, or someone else will take it from you and use it against you.” John Bevere and his wife Lisa are the founders of Messenger International, an organization established to teach, reach, and rescue. A minister and best-selling author, John delivers messages of uncompromising truth with boldness and passion. His desire is to support the local church and resource leaders regardless of location, language, or financial position. To this end, his resources have been translated into over 60 languages. John is father to his four boys and adopted daughter-in-law and g-daddy to Asher and Sophia. He is (almost) a scratch golfer, and his favorite sports team is the Detroit Red Wings. When he’s home, you can find John playing cards with his family or trying to convince Lisa to take up golf. To connect with John, be sure to follow him on Twitter (@johnbevere).
