True Courage: A Book Review

About The Book:

May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!
Daniel 6:16

Bestselling author and Bible teacher, Steve Farrar, reminds us through the story of Daniel that true courage can be ours daily and it comes from the one true Sovereign God.

Everyone can recall as a young child having the courage to head out the door-whether it was to your first day of school, your first game in little league, or your piano lesson. Then life takes over and you lose your bravado, giving in to the fears of the world around you. 

In True Courage readers will discover a God who provides incredible courage to us in the midst of uncertainty, even through treacherous, evil days, and the courage to face lions in their den-or an unexpected job loss, the diagnosis of a sick child, or the return of a debilitating cancer.

About The Author:

Steve Farrar is the founder and chairman of Men's Leadership Ministries. A graduate of California State University, Fullerton, with a Master's degree from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, he also has an earned a doctorate from Dallas Theological Seminary. Steve authored the best-selling book, Point Man: How a Man Can Lead His Family and has since written fifteen other books. He is a frequent speaker at conferences, for Promise Keepers and at many other events nationwide. Steve and his wife, Mary, have three grown children and currently reside in suburban Dallas, Texas.

My Review:

Daniel is one of my favorite people from the Bible and I love to read non-fiction that studies his life. I love that the many lessons from Daniel's life can be so easily adapted to my own, and that the Lord seems to teach me something new each time I either read the book of Daniel or a book studying the book.

 Recently I had the opportunity to read True Courage by Steve Farrar and he does a phenomenol job at showing the reader how to learn from the life of Daniel, despite the circumstances we may find ourselves in.

Farrar writes in a very easy-to read and comprehend manner, and is also very sound theologically. I feel that True Courage is a wonderful source of inspirational and a wonderful reminder that whatever we are going through, regardless of what the journey is, God will never leave us nor forsake. Just as He gave Daniel the courage and strength to walk through his journey (at times very difficult), He will also give us the same courage. If only we let Him.

True Courage by Steve Farrar has been a very challenging yet inspiring book, and I highly recommend it!
