Courageous Christians : Devotional Stories for Family Readin Mar 1, 2002
When I received this book, I was pleasantly pleased with its format and even more pleased with itýs content. Joyce Vollmer Brown has gathered sixty note-worthy stories of people, some past and some current, who have had their faith put to the test. The authorýs goal was to introduce families, especial children, to heroýs of the faith. She has accomplished that goal and more. We strongly recommend this book to all believers. You will find encouragement and inspiration. One other note, the publisher of this book is Moody Publishing, which is a publisher that I trust greatly when looking for a book of biblical content.
A "must read" for all! Jul 29, 2000
This is one fantastic book! It's inspiring, educational, and most of all, provides something that's lacking in many homes today--great discussion between parents and their kids--even their teenagers!
"Courageous Christians" teaches without preaching. It explores the importance of integrity, perseverance, dreaming big dreams, and never giving up. You'll meet lots of new people, and become better acquainted with some you've known of previously.
Kids of all ages will love this book, and so will their parents. So gather everyone around the sofa before going to bed tonight. Start at the beginning, and read a different story every night. You'll be touched, amazed, and inspired.
Ms. Brown has done an excellent job. The reader will be refreshed and invigorated. I bought several copies of this book to give as Christmas and graduation gifts.
Run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore and buy this book. You won't be disappointed!
