It may be the biggest Christian video hit in years – certainly the biggest of 2012.
It’s called “Courageous” – and the title tells the story.
As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer, yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, they quickly discover that their children are beginning to drift further away from them.
When tragedy strikes home, the men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith and their fathering. Sherwood Pictures, creators of “Fireproof,” returns with this heartfelt, action-packed story. Protecting the streets is second nature to these law enforcement officers. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.
Starring: Alex Kendrick, Kevin Downes, Ken Bevel, Robert Amaya, Ben Davies
