In Courageous-the novelization by Randy Alcorn of the screenplay Courageous by Alex and Stephen Kendrick- the theme of family leadership is examined from a biblical perspective as applied to a 21st century environment. What happens to a fatherless home? Police officers Alex, Nathan, Shane, and David continually deal with gang crime in Albany, Georgia. They see firsthand the pain and brokenness that result when fathers are absent. By clinging to God’s truth, these four men learn that it takes more than having children to be a father. It takes courage.

The Scriptures are filled with examples of marvelous fathers, from Jesse, the father of David, to Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus. But the Bible also tells of the incest of Lot, the drunkenness of Noah, the adultery of David, and the pagan indulgences of Solomon. When fathers fail to follow the will of their own Heavenly Father, the results are disastrous. This novel shows that such rules and guidance are still applicable to today. As four contemporary cops try to curb the drug trafficking, street violence, and drive-by shootings in Georgia, they discover that most of these crimes are caused by boys who grew up without strong male role models, without proper family discipline, and without manly love and protection.

This book is based on the script used by Sherwood Baptist Church Productions, the creators of Facing the Giants and Fireproof, in filming the movie version of Courageous. This book’s plot, character development, and life applications are all excellent. The heart-pounding twists and affirming story lessons make it a hard one to put down. Due to the drug references and gang violence, this story is appropriate for older readers, namely teens and adults. Because of the terrific story and deep biblical applications, I highly recommend Courageous. – Molly Anderson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
