What are the sources of anxiety, stress, and fear you experience in your life? Popular Catholic speaker and author Sonja Corbitt believes that these often-paralyzing emotions are the direct result of our everyday battles against sin and temptation. In Fearless, she equips us with the spiritual tools we need to restore our spiritual well-being.
The term “spiritual warfare” conjures images of heavenly battles between archangels and demons, but Sonja Corbitt insists that there is a realm of spiritual warfare that is more domestic than it is cosmic—in the trenches of dirty bathrooms, fighting children, irritable spouses, the struggle to stop smoking or overeating, crazy schedules, and overwhelming workloads.
In her new book, the author of Unleashed takes us deep into scripture and the spiritual practices of the Church in order to show us how to resist the avalanche of temptations that can threaten us and lead to paralyzing anxiety and fear. Through her powerful personal story and teaching, Corbitt shows us how to put on the armor of Christ and learn to live fearlessly, love with abandon, and embrace life with confidence.
In Unleashed, Corbitt identified the spiritual wounds that reveal themselves through the harmful patterns and relationships in our lives. In Fearless, she offers scriptural tools that help us understand and conquer the demons of sin, Satan, self, and sloth. She helps us recognize the methods the devil uses to keep us enslaved and she immerses us in a profound contemplation of love, which is the only possible weapon against the spirit of fear.
In this book you will come to understand
- the spiritual roots of fear, depression, and anxiety;
- ways to “abide” in Christ and find freedom from fear;
- signs of negative spiritual suggestion and influence in your daily life;
- the deep, personal lies we believe that keep us slaves to fear;
- specific truths about the limitations of Satan’s power and character;
- the “pieces” of spiritual armor that protect us from fear; and
- how to rest fully in God’s goodness and love.
Each chapter contains features that will make it a popular resource for personal and group study: review notes, an invitation to prayer, and a series of probing questions (called God Prompts) that encourage you to explore the content in a deeply personal way. Fearless offers encouragement to those who are anxious or fearful about the future and who seek a spiritual solution.

"A down-to-earth primer on spiritual warfare."
“Sonja Corbitt tackles everyday spiritual battles with wit, wisdom, and the word of God. Rich with personal examples and insights, Fearless is a down-to-earth primer on spiritual warfare. I recommend its practical approach for anyone who wants to learn to confront the lies and lures of the devil before they take root, and live in the freedom and love of Christ.”
