Courageous Living : Dare to Take a Stand


Be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24 (HCSB)

Catch a fresh wind of bravery through the bold biblical accounts of Abraham, Joshua, Ruth, and many others in Courageous Living by Michael Catt, pastor and executive producer of the unforgettable film COURAGEOUS.

In the movie, four police officers are focused and confident when it comes to facing danger on the job. But leading their families at home in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.

Because we are called to take a faithful, fearless stand in all that matters. Catt sheds new light on the stories of people in the Bible who displayed great courage when it would have been easier to play it safe. They challenge and inspire us now to keep moving forward to examine our priorities, and to deal with anything that brings fear to our heart.

My Review:

Compelling and uplifting, this book complements the movie that has received rave reviews because it dared. And Courageous Living is full of dares -- to be less successful so you can be more significant -- to choose to strive beyond average to exceptional -- to stretch beyond our comfort zone -- to redefine the world's stand of success by seeking God's will in our lives -- to take back the responsibility of parenthood from schools, churches and community organizations.

Catt punctuates those dares with poignant examples of people willing to face life courageously with God as their inspiration. He encourages his readers to examine what drives them and then asks the all-important question, "Are you willing to change?"

This book, like the movie, is a wake-up call without apology. Will you take the dare?
