A clarion call for you to boldly live out your faith

Christians today face relentless attacks from an ungodly culture, a formidable spiritual adversary, and our own fallen natures. Yet we cannot afford to surrender to these very real enemies. Because if we do, we fail in our mission to share the hope of Christ with the world.

Just as survivalists use strategies to overcome threatening situations, Courageous explains ten biblical strategies for surviving--and thriving--in a world that is hostile to our faith.

If you've felt your faith is under attack, if you're struggling with the temptation to follow the crowd despite biblical teaching to the contrary, or if you're just feeling weary, the ten strategies in Courageous will provide fresh fire and new hope.


"If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, this is a must-read book! Though I have taught survival skills to Marines, Boy Scouts, my four kids, and now eighteen grandkids, it never occurred to me to apply these skills to living as a Christian in today's hostile environment. Thankfully, my friend Dr. Jeffress did--just in time."--Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC (Ret.)

"It's one thing to say we have faith and another thing entirely to know how to live out that faith! In Courageous, my friend Robert Jeffress beautifully helps us understand how to put our faith into real action in our lives--which is of course the whole point!"--Eric Metaxas, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and host of the Eric Metaxas Show

"With all the uncertainty in our world right now, this new book by my friend Robert Jeffress is a welcome encouragement for believers. His Bible-based tips on thriving during challenging times are not only practical and easy to understand but will help you to stand strong in your faith and live victoriously."--Robert Morris, founding lead senior pastor of Gateway Church and bestselling author of The Blessed LifeFrequency, and Beyond Blessed

"In his remarkable new book, Dr. Jeffress shows us page-by-page how to live as winsome and effective ambassadors for Jesus Christ, all so that the perishing will come to salvation and God will receive the glory! I give this book a double thumbs-up!"--Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

Robert Morris, founding lead senior pastor of Gateway Church and bestselling author of The Blessed LifeFrequency, and Beyond Blessed

"When it comes to living out biblical principles, we quickly discover we're in an unfriendly culture. Ephesians 5:11 tells us to 'Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness,' so how then do we build bridges to skeptics and cynics? How do we win wicked people with antagonistic agendas to the side of our Savior? In his remarkable new book, Courageous: 10 Strategies for Thriving in a Hostile World, Dr. Jeffress shows us page-by-page how to live as winsome and effective ambassadors for Jesus Christ, all so that the perishing will come to salvation and God will receive the glory! I give this book a double thumbs-up!"

Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"No book title ever fit its author's personality better than this one. One of the words I often use to describe Robert Jeffress is courageous. As a former pastor of First Baptist in Dallas, I have been privileged to watch time and again his courageous yet loving leadership in daily action. This book is not some self-help treatise. These principles have been beaten out on the anvil of the author's own personal and practical experience. Read it . . . and reap!"

O. S. Hawkins, author of the bestselling Code series of Christian devotionals

"My friend Robert Jeffress has demonstrated courage time and again by boldly preaching God's Word in the pulpit and answering tough critics in the media. In these pages, he outlines practical survival strategies that will help us courageously navigate the storms of life. Through powerful biblical examples and present-day testimonies, Robert reminds us that the wisdom and supernatural ability God has provided us as believers is more than enough to defeat the enemy's strategy."

James Robison, founder and president of LIFE Outreach International, Fort Worth, Texas
