Adam Hamilton's - Unafraid "Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times" Drawing on recent research, inspiring real-life examples, and fresh biblical insight, Hamilton shows how to untangle the knots we feel about disappointing others, failure, financial insecurity, loneliness, insignificance, and aging.
