"...How to cultivate the courage to resist fear."--prologue.
Resistance is at the heart of the Christian faith; it's right there in our baptismal vows when we promise to stand up to anything that would take the place of Christ. In times of fear and injustice, people of faith must develop the spiritual courage necessary to proclaim another way. In courageous faith, author Emily C. Heath lays out a spiritual path towards courage that will first transform us, and then transform the world.
