« CVBBS: Expert Book Advice



Pastor Steve,

The pastor at my church is preaching a series our courage. We read often in the scriptures to be strong and courageous because the Lord is with us. Could you recommend some books that deal with the topic of courage?

Thank you,

Kenneth Clayton


Thank you for your question. I do not know of a book dedicated to "being strong in the Lord", but passages come to mind that have that biblical exhortation. Therefore Bible commentaries and expositions on these key passages should be consulted.

Deuteronomy 31:6,7, 23

Joshua 1:7-9

1st Corinthians 16:13

Ephesians 6:10

These and similar passages in Scripture are probably the basis of your pastor's sermons.

Also study commentaries and expositions that deal with the need to fear the Lord more than fearing men. You might look at the following too:

"Courage To Stand" by Philip Ryken; Crossway
"Courage" by Wayne Mack; Focus
"Courage To Be Protestant" by David Wells; Eerdmans

Your Book Servant,

Pastor Steve Martin
