In anticipation of Sherwood Pictures’ fourth film, Michael Catt’s latest book, Courageous Living, will be released nationwide on September 1, 2011. It’s available for pre-purchase on many of your favorite websites, and we’ll offer signed copies through our bookstore at Sherwood.
From B&H Publishers:
In the new film COURAGEOUS (from the makers of Fireproof), four police officers are confident and focused when it comes to facing danger on the job. But leading their families at home in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.
Because it is important to take a faithful, fearless stand in so many areas of life, pastor and COURAGEOUS executive producer Michael Catt offers Courageous Living as a closer look at biblical themes and characters that inspired the greatly anticipated movie.
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.”
Readers will catch a new wind of bravery in the bold accounts of Abraham (“The Courage to Get Going”), Nehemiah (“The Courage to Face Criticism”), and Ruth (“The Courage to Face an Uncertain Future”). There are also growth opportunities in the stirring stories of Moses, Elijah, Joshua, Daniel, Gideon, Nehemiah, Stephen, and Paul and Timothy.
– Michael Catt, pastor and executive producer of the film COURAGEOUS, examines the courage shown by bilical characters (Abraham, Nehemiah, Ruth, Paul, etc.) to enliven our faith today.
– Courageous Living has direct motion picture affiliation (comparable to Catt’s Fireproof Your Life book and the Fireproof film) and is suited for personal, small group, or church-wide study with or apart from the film.
– Catt is widely known as senior pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church whose media ministry originate the No. 1 films Facing the Giants and Fireproof. As executive procuder of both projects, he has appeared in the New York Times and on The 700 Club, The Dr. Phil Show, and more.
