Be Strong and Courageous follows the success of David Yount’s Book-of-the-Month Club bestseller Growing in Faith. Writing in his trademark conversational style, Yount structures the book as a series of letters to encourage and inspire his young adult daughters in faith. He draws from his vast theological training and reflection to share his deep conviction that having faith makes sense. Written for parents, young adults, believers, and skeptics alike, Be Strong and Courageous shows how Christians can face life’s challenges with faith, hope, love, and confidence.
David Yount is a religion columnist for the Scripps Howard News Service. His weekly column ‘Amazing Grace’ reaches over 25 million readers, and three of his recent books have been Book-of-the-Month club selections. A former university dean, founding president, seminary chair, and award-winning newspaper editor, he lectures widely and hosts a cable television program.
