Publisher's Description

In the new film COURAGEOUS (from the makers of Fireproof), four police officers are confident and focused when it comes to facing danger on the job. But leading their families at home in a God-honoring way? That takes courage. 

Because it is important to take a faithful, fearless stand in so many areas of life, pastor and COURAGEOUS executive producer Michael Catt offers Courageous Living as a closer look at biblical themes and characters that inspired the greatly anticipated movie. 

Catt brings fresh insight to "stories of people in the Bible who displayed great courage when it would have been easier to play it safe... (who) challenge me to keep moving forward. They demand that I examine my priorities and deal with anything that brings fear to my heart." 

Readers will catch a new wind of bravery in the bold accounts of Abraham ("The Courage to Get Going"), Nehemiah ("The Courage to Face Criticism"), and Ruth ("The Courage to Face an Uncertain Future"). There are also growth opportunities in the stirring stories of Moses, Elijah, Joshua, Daniel, Gideon, Nehemiah, Stephen, and Paul and Timothy.

    We are currently going through the Courageous material at our weekly men's group. It is both insightful and engaging. This particular book was purchased as a resource for the leader to use inconjunction with the study guides. We may use it as the basis of an eight week follow up study once we have completed the initial four part series. I highly recommend this material in all its forms.

    Did you see the movie, Courageous? Five men who take a stand to be courageous in their faith, their homes and their world. It is a powerful and moving show. Now you have the opportunity to bring that suge of courage and strength into your own life.

    Michael Catt, senior Pastor at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia, home of the movie making team of pastors and laypeople responsible for Courageous gives us a biblical breakdown of the concept of courage.

    Courageous Living is a short book but a fireball of prompts to action, calls to stand up and urges to speak out. Michael is not soft in his delivery and leaves no grey areas behind. Although I found the movement of the book to fast at times to properly digest, there was page after page of golden nuggets to bolster my faith.

    Courage is a word our materialistic and self-serving culture shies away from. Catt pulls back the veil of fear and timidity and forces the reader to take notice of what God is calling his believers to ... a courageous life.

    You do not need to be familiar with the movie Courageous to get something from this book. Catt quotes from the movie at times but his focus is not the movie or the movie makers; his focus is the call of our Lord to ‘be strong and courageous'. The book is meant to inspire action in our hands, movement from our feet and of course hours on our knees. All you need is a saving knowledge of Jesus and a heart to see His kingdom come.

    I think there is great value in this book and encourage everyone to read it. You may not agree with Catt's style or his no-holds-barred approach but you cannot argue his biblical examples of courage. He breaks down the lives of Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Daniel, Elijah, Nehemiah, Ruth, Timothy, Stephan and Jesus Christ. He spurs us as believers onto the call to live boldly and courageously for Christ.

    Do as Michael Catt encourages you ... dare to take a stand ... for your faith and your family.

    This book has a powerful and challenging message for men, women and young people: "We need to man up! We need to be courageous! We need to do it now!" The author highlights biblical characters like Gideon, Joshua and Ruth to drive this point home throughout the book. Reading it you're challenged to examine yourself and strive even more to be the person God wants you to be. I especially appreciated the analogies like this one: "If you want to raise a Moses, you can't be training your kids like a chicken or an ostrich." encouraging parents to be godly and courageous, have a mission, a purpose in life to lead the next generation to God. I would recommend this thought-provoking book for anyone, especially those who seek to 'be on guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.' 1 Corinthians 16:13
