What I’m Reading

My Thoughts

What the message of the movie Courageous did for fathers everywhere, Courageous Teens  could do for our youth. Courageous Teens is about empowering and encouraging our youth in their faith and living out that faith courageously.

Each chapter begins with a clip of dialog from the movie Courageous and scripture about the  men and women in the Bible that God used in great ways. There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter to help facilitate conversations. This book would be a fantastic study for youth in small groups, a mentoring study, or an individual study.

You can purchase the book here:

About the Book

Courageous Teens is a student-focused presentation of Courageous Living by Michael Catt, senior pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church and executive producer of the hit film Courageous.

Michael 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. Teen readers will be inspired to resolve to live for God as they learn more about Abraham, Moses, Nehemiah, Ruth, Daniel, and many more.
