Courageous is the novel adaptation of the much anticipated fourth movie in the Sherwood films series by Alex and Stephen Kendrick.

Courageous is the account of two law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell and  Nathan Hayes, who are not afraid to put their life on the line when it comes to the job but struggle to stand up to the difficult task of fatherhood.  Through out the many twist and turns in this story, you will be captivated by the action and suspense but will be moved to compassion,if not tears, by the reality that most men have to learn to deal with; Being the man/father God has called you to be.

I was glad to see that this novel was written by Randy Alcorn and not just an adaptation of the movie script. There is great detail and attention given to the story that really allows your imagination to take over and place yourself within the story. I also and pleased at how the Gospel stands out in this novel and is pointing the reader to a foundational truth  all the while captivating the reader with his great writing style.

One of the things that I liked about the copy of this book that I received from Tyndale, is that at the back were some discussion questions for a reading group and they also included some photography shots from the movie.

This is definitely a great book to get interested in and to share with someone. It’s thought provoking and down- to-earth in it’s message.

I received my complimentary copy of “Courageous” from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for a review. All comments and opinions are my own and have not been solicited by Tyndale.
