Excerpt: We need men to match our mountains. In these pages I explore the examples of people in the Bible who displayed great courage when playing it safe would have been easier. They challenge us to keep moving forward. They cause us to examine our priorities and deal with anything that brings fear to our hearts. Courageous Living, pg 3.
Back Cover: 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: I found Courageous Living a motivating and inspiring book. Michael Catt presents the familiar stories of the heroes of the faith in a practical and challenging way. After reading these pages, you can't help but want to be courageous in every aspect of your life. I was encouraged, challenged and changed as I read the pages of this book. I'm sure you will be too.
My Recommendation: I highly recommend this book.
