"There must be more to the Christian life than this-more than church each Sunday and waving to my neighbors and giving some clothes to Goodwill when I go through my closet each spring." These aren't bad things, of course. But they're safe and comfortable and easy. And there's a reason they're not satisfying your desire for something more significant and meaningful-we're created by God for adventure.
Prepare to step off the well-trodden path of your spiritual journey, and take the road less traveled—one that's also far more rewarding! With tremendous power, simplicity, godly courage, International Justice Mission president Gary Haugen leads readers into a more substantial expression of faith and love through the preservation of human dignity, value and worth in Just Courage: God's Great Expedition for the Restless Christian. Haugen explores what it looks like to care about those who suffer, illuminating his own conviction that engaging in the fight for justice is the most deeply satisfying way to enter into God's great expedition.

"This book is a strong call for every Christian to deepen their walk with God. I encourage you to read this book and seek God's direction for the next step of service in your life!"
—Jim Fretheim, Imprints, Winter 2009
"Just Courage is a life-changing book. Gary Haugen's echo of God's call to a life of significance and adventure is irresistible. He places the fight for justice right where the Bible does: square in the middle of Christian discipleship. Every follower of Jesus should read this book and take action on behalf of a world that 'waits, groaning' for us to bring hope, love and rescue."
—Lynne and Bill Hybels, Willow Creek Community ChurchM
"I dare you to read Gary Haugen without growing a bigger vision of God. He is a prophet in our day calling us to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God."
—John Ortberg, pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, and author of When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box
Patricia Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5September 17, 2008Patricia ChadwickThis is one of the best books I've read this year. It is concise, well written, and challenging. The author defines courage as "the power to do the right thing even when it is scary and hard - resonates deeply with the original shape of our soul" (p103) How often do we have the opportunity to consider how we might live courageously in today's world. This book provides a gentle nudge for those who desire to be gripped by the big issues of life but really don't know where or how to begin. I read the book in two days (literally)-- it was that good.
