Call It Courage
One of My Childhood Favorites
As a boy, I dreamed of adventure. I ran through the woods fighting imaginary enemies, carving bows and arrows, erecting lean-tos and tents. I loved the outdoors, with all its beauty and danger. "Call it Courage" was one of my favorite books as a preteen, capturing these dreams in exotic and hair-raising fashion. Mafatu is a 15 year old boy, whose name means "Stout Heart," and yet he is ...

The Courage to Heal Workbook: A Guide for Women and Men Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
An excellent challenge that leads the way to healing
I'm about half way through the workbook so far. I like it very much. The book pushes me to think hard about my past and challenges me to change bad habits. This is a great book for me--it was just what I needed to continue healing and growing.
Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight
You may disline Rove but you'll like the book
I am not a fan of the Bush-Cheney-Rove years but I recommend that you read the book. It's full of things that were news to me, and provided a well-deserved way of showing the other side of a number of stories that got distorted by the press and opinion-makers on the left. I was especially impressed by Rove's overview of the way in which he used mathematical modeling to help Bush win ...
Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West
Stephen E. Ambrose
Simon & Schuster
Ambrose on the Lewis and Clark expedition
There is countless material available on Lewis and Clark and the "Voyage of Discovery". I have enjoyed the read and consider it a very good introduction to the subject and the material available. For those who want to do more, the Moulton edition of the Journals is essential. Also worthwhile is Bernard DeVoto, "The Journals of Lewis and Clark". The Ambrose book works for book discussion groups ...
The Red Badge of Courage
How Did He Do This?
An American classic, "The Red Badge of Courage" was written by Stephen Crane in the late 1800s while he was only 21 years of age. He had never been to war. He'd heard only stories of the Civil War. How did he pull off such a psychological profile of a young soldier going into battle? Henry and a few acquaintances sign up for battle, going to fight the Confederates (though this book never makes ...
Rushworth M. Kidder
Maintaining Principles Under Pressure
Rushworth Kidder's examples of moral courage by people in different walks of life are useful, instructive, and inspiring. Kidder analyses the qualities that constitute moral courage and the character of the people making morally courageous decisions in a wide variety of contexts. I don't think that there is anyone one who could not benefit by reading this book, and it doesn't need to be read ...

Just Courage: God's Great Expedition for the Restless Christian
Gary A. Haugen
Being Brave and Not Safe - I love it!
If you want to stay safe and just be a church attendee, this book is probably not for you. But if you want to go on an adventure and make a difference with your life as you follow Christ, you will devour this book. I did. It spoke to my soul and gave me great encouragement as it refreshed my resolve to be brave and follow Christ in what I call "point of need ministry." I love when Haugen ...
Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War
Nathaniel Philbrick is one of the best historical authors that I have read. He is a top notch researcher, one of best when it comes to describing historical events. The ideas he writes are clear and logical. The reason I chose MAYFLOWER to read was because I enjoyed reading Philbrick's last book published this year, THE LAST STAND, the history of Custer and the Little Big Horn, the book ...
The Red Badge of Courage (Enriched Classics (Pocket))
Simon & Schuster
Study of a Boy Grappling with His First Experiences at War
Many deeply moving images of scenes from within the civil war as we share the thoughts, feelings, and changes a boy goes through while going off to fight for the first time; the experiences truly brought up close and personal. Several times I had trouble figuring out which side, North or South, he was describing, though. Fun reading a piece written in 1895, and a Stephen Crane bio in the ...
The Red Badge of Courage: An Episode of the American Civil War
Stephen Crane's best-known work remains singularly powerful more than a century after publication, a remarkably vivid acid-trip-like ride told in a grippingly naturalistic way. The product of a man in his mid-20s who had never been closer to war than military school and veteran's parades, "Red Badge Of Courage" captures both the lulls and terrors of combat as experienced in the Civil War. ...
The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-lovers, Marketers, and Emergents in the Postmodern World
David F. Wells
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
Deep, Penetrating Analysis, But Not Flawless
This volume is a thought-out critique of trends in modern evangelicalism -- trends away from the Biblical faith originally associated with the word "Protestant." In some ways, this book would be a draw to those already "in the choir." My suspicion is that not many seeker-sensitives or emergents are going to peruse this volume. But it can (and hopefully will) cause those on the fence (or who ...
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
COURAGE for everybody
When I think of examples of courage, only a few things come to my mind. Waber listed all kinds of courage...even for dogs! Everyone must have experienced one in the book. I really enjoyed it because I could relate to many pages of the book. Waber did a good job to show that courage is never too small or silly. And I loved the last line- courage is what we give to each other. It's so true~
Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders and How They Changed America 1789-1989
Michael R. Beschloss
Simon & Schuster
I was quite pleased with this book
In this very interesting book, author and historian Michael R. Beschloss goes through the various times when American presidents had to make tough decisions, taking their reputations into their hands and doing what was best but perhaps not popular. Presidents are covered here from George Washington choosing to back the unpopular Jay Treaty, through Franklin Roosevelt's decision to help England ...
The Courage to Grieve: The Classic Guide to Creative Living, Recovery, and Growth Through Grief
Grief is hard. This book can help.
My wife died when she was thirty-four. I know what grief feels like. I also know that there is help to heal the hurt. This book is one of those important helpers. Since we grieve in different ways, you may not agree with everything the author says. But what she says is extremely valuable. Even if you just get one comforting thought from this book, and there are many to select from, it is well ...
The Red Badge of Courage (Evergreen Classics)
Young Civil War soldier Henry Fielding endures the nightmare of battle as he comes to grips with his fears and feelings of cowardice. Stephen Crane's powerful, imaginative, emotionally compelling description of war established him as a major American writer and propelled him to immediate international celebrity.
The Courage of Their Convictions: Sixteen Americans Who Fought Their Way to the Supreme Court
Individual Power and the Judicial Process
I work at a University Library and see many, many books. This book caught my eye and I found myself compelled to read it. The situation in our government seems to leave many people I talk to feeling discouraged and powerless. Iron's book reminds us that we don't have to be powerless. I encourage High School teachers to read the book and consider assigning at least parts of it to their students. ...
