Courageous Books Are NYT bestsellers

Compiled by Michael Foust

A pair of books based on biblical themes from the movie "Courageous" has made The New York Times' bestseller list.

"The Resolution for Men" by authors Stephen and Alex Kendrick is No. 10 on the newspaper's Oct. 30 list of paperback advice books. "The Resolution for Women" by author Priscilla Shirer is No. 14. Both books are published by B&H Publishing Group.

Courageous, made by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., was the top new movie on opening weekend and has grossed about $25 million since it opened Sept. 30.

It is the second time a book inspired by a Sherwood film has made The New York Times' bestseller list. In 2008, the book "The Love Dare" hit No. 1 on The Times' paperback advice list. It was featured in the film "Fireproof."

B&H Publishing Group is the trade books arm of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Until next time...share the journey ane enjoy the ride!
