From Publishers Weekly
Nappa (A Mind Like His and A Heart Like His) uses a commonplace seven-letter word courage to pack considerable punch on the subject of what is fundamentally necessary to live passionately for Christ. Nappa challenges Christians to pray, think and worship with hearts of courage. Rather than resort to overused solutions, Nappa's counsel fairly shouts with a rare freshness. He says that Christians whose faith has lost its passion should be courageous enough to admit guilty secrets and failings to others, then be accountable for their actions. Finally, they should make prayer the backbone of their existence by relying on the Holy Spirit's strength rather than fickle human stamina. Nappa's personal narratives frequently reveal his own struggles toward a consistent selfless heart while underscoring each Christian's desperate need for rejuvenation at the cross of Christ. This six-part text also discusses the personal cost of following Christ, how to put passion for Christ to work within the nitty-gritty of life, the paradoxical beauty of transformed weakness and failure, and the strength needed to continually press forward with heavenly vision and a resilient trust in God's faithful provision. Closing out this fine handbook is a chapter-by-chapter discussion and study guide written by Michael S. Warden, whose insightful questions complement the principles covered by Nappa. Readers will appreciate Nappa's tender heart, and his work will inspire both the wayward and the zealous to a more courageous, fearless Christian journey. (Mar.)

Reviews - What do customers think about Courage to be Christian: Entering a Life of Spiritual Passion?

Hang on and get ready to be challenged.  Dec 10, 2002
When I was given this book, I was told to "hang-on" when I read it. They were right -- WOW! Talk about cutting to the chase and laying things on the table -- it was terrific. When I try to explain to friends my love for my home church, White's Ferry Road, one of the things I tell them is that our leaders/instructors/ministers really do a fabulous job of bringing the scriptures to life. The stories, explanations, and references that they use are so timely, so understandable, so applicable to everyday life -- that I find myself wanting more. That's how this book was for me -- Mike Nappa did an outstanding job of "talking" to me in the book -- not preaching at me -- but holding a genuine conversation with a heartfelt concern for my spiritual well-being. I was so impressed...This is one that you'll want to talk about with your spouse, your friends, etc. and ultimately bless someone else's life by sharing it with them.
Moving and Funny  Oct 25, 2002
A wonderfully moving book with illustrations to make the points come alive! Nappa moves the reader to take some chances in their spiritual journey even if it means failure, because being a Christian means being courageous. Nappa uses personal stories and typical preacher stories to bring the message home. You will not want to put the book down.
