I grew up without a father, and nowadays, people have forgotten what it really means to be a parent. Fatherhood is more than just being there to pay the bills or showing up once in a while with a wad of cash. That means nothing to a child who requires your time and attention. I especially love how this movie emphasizes that daughters need their fathers, too! And there's a compelling contemporary storyline to follow! I didn't think I'd see that so well done in a Christian movie. Courageous will always be one of my favorites.
I really liked the movie because it shows fathers in a positive light. We need to see more movies where fathers are Christians and they are present to raise their children. My father is a Christian and he was present in our home to raise us.
We purchased this movie back when it came out and it has always been a favorite. We use this movie in our DVD ministry box as well. It's a good solid movie with great actors/characters. If we only lived in a perfect world? Quite honestly, as Christians we ALL should be BOLD in our FAITH and FAITHFUL in our walks. May God open our eyes and show us where we fall short and may He strengthen us in those areas.
