From Fear To Faith

“Scripture tells us that ‘fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.’ But what kind of fear and how much fear is too much when it comes to our relationship with God and our efforts to live our lives as Catholic Christians? Drawing from his own personal struggles Gary Zimak combines experience with the expertise of solid Church teaching and God’s Word to address these important questions and more in this book. Given the many challenges facing believers today, this book is a must have for any one serious about becoming the person the Lord wants them to be.”

“With vivid clarity, honesty and thoughtfulness, Gary Zimak draws from Sacred Scripture, practical wisdom, endearing personal stories, and timeless devotions to show how unwavering trust in the power of God’s love casts out all fear, heals wounds of sin and division, and opens our hearts to God’s will in our lives. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to take their faith to the next level—who is “stuck” in the abyss of fear and yearns to ascend toward the summit of enduring peace.”

EWTN series host, author, and director of Dynamicdeacon.com

Through a heartfelt conversational approach, Gary Zimak underscores the necessity in encountering Jesus to fully experience the joy of the gospel. Zimak offers solid no-nonsense proof of why worrying is detrimental to the health of body and soul and provides a doable step by step plan to overcome worry and fear. Great for laity, priests, religious, and ministries—highly recommended.”

“Jesus said that fear is useless and what is needed is trust. Yet how do we move from ordinary life in our age of anxiety to that trusting life of faith? Gary Zimak shows the way in steps even I can follow. You’ll come to treasure this book, but don’t just keep it to yourself. Buy copies for your friends and family members who need it.”

“Gary Zimak has created a masterpiece. This book is a sincere, energetic, and practical source of encouragement to all of us who have ever struggled with self-doubt or fear. It’s an indispensable resource for the journey of our lives. Read it and allow yourself to be transformed. The peace of the Lord awaits!”

“One of my favorite passages in the New Testament is when Jesus tells his apostles the following: “In the world you have troubles; but be of good cheer, I have conquered the world” (Jn. 16:33). There is no doubt, as Jesus affirms, that we live in a troubled world that could give us much to worry about. Yet, our faith in the promises of Christ gives us the ability to overcome our fears and anxieties. In From Fear to Faith Gary Zimak gives both practical advice and biblical examples for helping us to have total confidence and trust in the goodness of our loving God. I highly recommend this book to all!”

A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible

“While there have been many apologetics books written about defending and explaining various doctrines and beliefs, I don’t know of any book that tackles a topic so timely and familiar to so many of us. This book is a keeper; one to keep on the night stand or on the kitchen table, close enough to grab when we need that daily dose of knowing that God is nearer than we think.”

(Teresa Tomeo, author, syndicated Catholic talk show host, and motivational speaker)

“Worrying robs us of all the goodness God wants to pour out upon us in the present moment. Let Gary Zimak guide you through the Bible in a truly creative way so that you can live a worry free life.”

(Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Rediscover Catholicism and The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic)

“Ask most of us if we worry, and we’ll share with you our laundry list of concerns about everything from our families, to our work, to the future and beyond… it’s a burden shared by even the most faith-filled among us. That’s why “A Worrier’s Guide to the Bible” by Gary Zimak has such great relevance for anyone living in today’s multi-tasking world. Employing the timeless truths of scripture in a way that is fresh and current for today’s spiritual seekers, this book should be a “go to” resource for anyone in search of true peace amidst life’s greatest challenges.”

(Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of www.CatholicMom.com and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms)

“Gary offers a personal, down-to-earth approach to something we all wrestle with. He shares from his own experience and from Church teaching in an approachable, engaging style. Worry is a universal habit, and I’m happy to recommend A Worrier’s Guide to the Bible to anyone who wants to worry less and trust God more.”

(Sean Herriott, Host and Managing Editor of Morning Air on Relevant Radio)

Listen To Your Blessed Mother

“Biblical, personal, engaging, and thought provoking are just a few words that come to mind when reading this wonderful book! The Virgin Mary truly is our BLESSED Mother, and listening to her words in Scripture can help us to become blessed, too. Gary Zimak has done a great service for both Catholics and non-Catholics in offering a book that unpacks the biblical words of Mary in a very conversational and easy-to-follow style. The reflection questions and points to ponder at the end of each section will be of great benefit to the reader, too! I highly recommend this book!”

(Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, STL, Author – Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest)

“Listen to your Mother! How many times did we hear those words growing up? How many times did we roll our eyes and ignore the sage advice only to find out later on that Mom indeed did and does know best, especially our Blessed Mother. Now, straight from Scripture, Gary Zimak has given us even more reason to pay close attention to what our Mother, as in Mary has to say about living a grace filled life in this world so we can be with her and her son in the next. This book will definitely bring you closer to the heart of Christ through the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God.”

(Teresa Tomeo,Syndicated Catholic Talk Show Host,Best Selling Catholic Author)

“In Listen to Your Blessed Mother, using Scripture and personal stories, author Gary Zimak takes us by the hand and unambiguously leads us to a greater appreciation of our Mother in heaven so that we might strive to imitate her virtues while allowing Mary to take us by the hand to her Son Jesus. Highly recommended!”

(Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN TV Host and author of sixteen Catholic books including The Miraculous Medal: Stories, Prayers, and Devotions)

“With candor and simplicity, Gary Zimak reveals the power of Mary’s words in Sacred Scripture. No matter where you are in your spiritual life — or in your relationship with the Blessed Mother — this book will help you find new meaning and guidance in her words: words that Zimak shows are applicable to any of the problems or decisions you face each day.”

(Vinny Flynn, Author of 7 Secrets of the Eucharist, 7 Secrets of Confession, and 21 Ways to Worship)

“When I was given an opportunity to review Listen to your Blessed Mother, I hesitated only because of the full plate I was dealing with at the time. When I finally dove into this wonderful book, I realized that Gary Zimak has written a beautiful love story about our Blessed Mother and one which needs to be shared with everyone. His description of his growing love of Mary from his childhood to the powerful impact her intercession has had on his life as an adult is riveting. His use of scripture about the Blessed Mother and the few words spoken by her helps the reader share in her life and purpose. The reflection questions at the end of each chapter challenge us to grasp the role of the Blessed Mother in our own lives. I strongly recommend this book!”

(Randy Hain, author of Along the Way: Lessons for an Authentic Journey of Faith and co-founder of Integrated Catholic Life eMagazine)

“Jesus is our brother, and so his Father is our Father, his mother is our mother. How sad that so few Christians know the perfect maternal love that God has given us in his family. Jesus tells us beloved disciples, ‘Behold your mother.’ What a sweet command! And Gary Zimak has made it sweeter still.”

(Mike Aquilina, EWTN host and author of more than 30 books on Catholic history, doctrine and devotion)

“Gary has given us great insights about our Blessed Mother Mary in Scripture which makes this not only a wonderful book for Catholics but also a great resource for evangelizing those outside the Church. This is definitely a book you can share with your evangelical friends to help them come to know and love our Mother Mary.”

(Gail Buckley, Founder & President. Catholic Scripture Study International)

“It’s such an obvious way to follow Jesus through Mary, that I’m surprised this book was not written before. While some think going directly to Jesus is the fastest and surest way, Gary shows us how wrong that thinking is. He shares his own zig-zag journey to Mary as a way to grow closer to Christ. Though Mary in the Bible, Gary helps us to relish her role in salvation history, reflect on her life, and embrace her love for us.”

(Patti Maguire Armstrong, award-winning author and managing editor and co-author of Ascension Press’s Amazing Grace Series)
