Publisher's Description

Retailers Choice Award winner, 2012
From the creators of Fireproof comes an inspiring new story about everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift farther and farther away from them. Will they be able to find a way to serve and protect those who are most dear to them? When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God . . . and to their children?

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

    This book was wonderful to read, and I enjoyed it much more than the movie; although, the movie is also very well done, and it is very enjoyable to watch. I would have liked to read the book first, but I wasn't able to get it before my husband bought the movie.

    We are reminded in this book to never take anyone for granted, because we never know when our time with them will end. We must love each other, and spend our time wisely - lest we regret our decisions when faced with death.

    Loved the characters. Problems these men had, people have today. Families can relate to these people. Makes you want to draw closer to our Lord and Saviour. Sorry the book wasn't longer.
