whom shall I fear?

Courageous Teens Book Review

SUMMARY:  You need courage.
     You need the courage to stand strong when everything else 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.
     Looking at strong biblical characters, examples from the unforgettable film Courageous, insightful questions, and practical applications.  Courageous Teens builds an unshakeable foundation for a courageous lifestyle.  Perfect for weekly group or individual study, this inspiring and in-depth study of courage will call teens like you to step out in faith, equipping you with the courage that is vital to your future - and to the future of us all.

REVIEW:  This is a great book for teens and adults alike.  The authors challenge their readers to take a stand for what is right - to be courageous - by showing how biblical characters such as Gideon, Joshua, Joseph and Ruth took as stand and changed the world around them.  There are questions and a recap at the end of each chapter to reinforce what they read and to challenge them to become a better, more courageous teen.  I would encourage teens, and even adults, to read this book.
