Fear is a powerful human emotion, and one that often baffles Christians.
When we turn to the Bible, we can get confused as to whether fear is a good or bad thing. God commands His people to fear him, but we are also told to fight fear. Michael Reeves clarifies where there is confusion, and encourages readers to rejoice in this bizarre paradox that the gospel both frees us from sinful fear and leads us to godly fear. This book argues from Scripture that godly fear is the opposite of being afraid of God or His punishment, as if He were a tryant. Instead, it's the intensity of the saints' love for, delight in, and enjoyment of all that God is. Rejoice and Tremble explores what it looks like when a believer is filled with a right and healthy fear of God, and how this fear is the means by which the people of God exhibit to the world the divine qualities of holiness, blessedness, happiness, wholeness, and beauty as they point to Christ Jesus.
