Item description for Unleashing Courageous Faith: The Hidden Power of a Man's Soul by Paul Coughlin...

Coaching men to choose the good and resist the bad, the author of No More Christian Nice Guy offers practical advice and information to men in search of manly courage, helping them become better leaders, disciples, husbands, and fathers. Original.

Publishers Description
Twenty-first-century men are too often frustrated cubicle dwellers while deep in their hearts they dream of Braveheart. The ancient Greeks believed manly courage--physical, moral, and spiritual--was found in the male soul. Called thumos, this type of courage appears in the New Testament, urging men to take action. For many men, thumos is the missing ingredient in their spiritual growth, ready to bless them with power, purpose, and integrity to make them better leaders, disciples, husbands, and fathers. Thumos, says Paul Coughlin, will repair the twenty-first-century male soul. In Unleashing Courageous Faith Paul Coughlin is simply a guy with a strong message for other guys--including former Christian Nice Guys. He unflinchingly looks at both the noble and undesirable aspects of thumos, coaching men to choose the good and resist the bad. This book is filled with practical help and information in Coughlin's signature readable style, packed with illustrations from his life and the lives of admirable men. It's ideal for men's groups as well as individuals.

Reviews - What do customers think about Unleashing Courageous Faith: The Hidden Power of a Man's Soul?

Very Helpful Book  May 14, 2010
In his recent book, "Unleashing Courageous Faith: The Hidden Power of a Man's Soul," Paul Coughlin challenges men to claim their God given strength (thumos) and to live it out. He does a great job of looking at the relationship between masculinity and faith. He creatively and helpfully works through issues surrounding this God given strength: how we find it, how we claim it, what kills it, how we feed it, how we use it, and the dark side of it. I enjoyed reading this book and I think it is a very helpful book. While Coughlin could not deal with every male personality type or every aspect of our God given strength, he does do a good job with the basics. I think this book would be great for a guys to study together. Then they could unpack some of the areas the Coughlin introduces, but does not have the pages to really discuss. All in all this is a very helpful book to help show that faith and masculinity are not mutually exclusive.
Good book, but is it balanced?  Jul 29, 2009
Like No More Jellyfish, Chickens or Wimps Coughlin writes a thought provoking book. He is a talented author who challenges men (and even women) to be courageous in their lives as well as faith. There were several gems in this book that gave me pause for contemplation. One of my favorite examples of `courageous faith' was Wilberforce, his views on anti-slavery and how he, a little man with God's help was able to accomplish what many thought was the impossible.

That being said, I do have concerns about this book. If a man with a passive personality reads this book, it may spur him onto good works, however, if a driven man takes hold of this book, I fear the balance is not there. Yes, as we see in Jesus, "boldness and gentleness aren't at all incompatible." However, we in our humanness often are bold for our own purposes and not God's. It takes a discerning soul to know the difference.
No More Wimpy Faith  Mar 31, 2009
The church has emasculated men, teaching them "to go with the flow so much that they end up going down the drain of most anyone else's will," states Paul Coughlin. As a result, men's faith lacks the animating spirit that fights for what is right.
Citing a recent survey which revealed that 90% of school students have witnessed an act of bullying, but only 11% have ever intervened; Coughlin argues that courage, since it is lacking in the fathers, is not being taught to their sons. He links this lack of courage to many failed marriages, as women discard husbands who lack the courage to relate on an honest emotional level.
The book challenges the idea of letting God do it all, calling the "just pray about it" mindset "too much wimpy reliance on overspirituality." Coughlin is not dismissing the role of prayer; rather, he is pointing out that for too many in the church, it has become an excuse for cowardly inaction.
Some churches I have attended preach such unquestioning submission that I can agree with Coughlin that church teaching can sap courage and strength from men. For men who have struggled with such teaching, this is a worthwhile book. Coughlin mixes humor with hard-hitting directness, encouraging men with examples of how to cultivate a muscular faith, and concludes the book with a twelve-lesson study guide.
Unleashing Courageous Faith  Mar 25, 2009
Unleashing Courageous Faith: The Hidden Power of a Man's Soul

This book will make you laugh out loud and it will make you think beyond your comfort zone. I hope this book will open the doors to great discussions everywhere as "iron sharpens iron"
We need to take courage seriously to heart and put some bone into our spiritual spines for both men and women.

Great read for men and the women who love them  Mar 24, 2009
Paul Coughlin's latest work, Unleashing Courageous Faith, is targeted to men, but this female reader loved the book. The author does a great job explaining true masculinity from a biblical perspective. Men who apply his practical advice to developing "thumos" (God-given strength) in their own lives will make themselves irresistible to women. My husband is giving a copy of "Unleashing Courageous Faith" to one of his best buddies.
