Courageous Teens by Michael Catt and Amy Parker

About 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.

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 . . . (who) challenge me to keep moving forward. They demand that I examine my priorities and deal with anything that brings fear to my heart.”
Teen readers will be inspired to resolve to live for God as they learn more about Abraham, Moses, Nehemiah, Ruth, Daniel, and many more.
Best-selling youth market author Amy Parker arranges the heart-stirring material into four categories: Courageous Faith, Courageous Leadership, Courageous Priorities, and Courageous Influence. Discussion questions are also included at the end of each chapter.

My Thought

This book is a take-off from the film Courageous.  Written in mind for our Teens.  All Teens should have a copy of this book!

From the back cover of Courageous Teens:
  • You need the courage to stand strong when everything eles is falling apart.
  • You need the courage to say no when the world entices with diversions.
  • You need the courage to be a faithful leader of the next generation.

The authors not only use the film Courageous but also the Bible for their resources in writing this book. They have chosen courageous people from the film and  from the Bible as roll models for our teens.  What better role models than the people God has chosen to lead by example.  

This book can be used as a devotional, for inspiration, bible study and group bible study.  The question presented throughout the book will peak the teens interest  and encourage them to apply what they have learned in their daily walk with God.

Teens are always looking for a hero.  There are so many great warriors, leaders and teachers in the bible.
When you think of courageous people and the Bible at the same time who would you choose as a role model?

What is holding you back from being a Courageous role model to our youth?


I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.

I received a free copy of this book from HANDLEBAR-Central and B&H Publishing Group for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.
