Storyline

Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, they face danger every day. Yet when tragedy strikes close to home, these fathers are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, and their faith. From this struggle will come a decision that changes all of their lives. With action, drama, and humor, the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures embraces God's promise to "turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers." Souls will be stirred, and hearts will be challenged to be ... courageous! Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The baby in the truck at the beginning was Ken Bevels real son. They were not expecting him to be crying when they opened the door, but it fit perfectly for the scene. In the audio commentary Stephen Kendrick says "there was nobody in the car prompting him to cry, we all were shocked and got chills that day when he opened the truck and the baby cried like that, it was GOD directing that portion of the scene, we were blown away by that".

Goofs

When Nathan falls off the truck while the thug crashes the truck in the tree, a stunt double is seen in the truck (wearing a green shirt/goatee) instead of the thug. See more »

Quotes

[Last lines]
Adam Mitchell: So where are you men of courage? Where are you, fathers who fear the Lord? It's time to rise up and answer the call that God has given to you, and to say, "I will. I will. I will."

'Courageous' is in the top 10 of my favorite faith-based movies. It really is a tremendous uplifting film that leaves you in tears from the very beginning to the very end. And it's all attributed to God. Kudos to Alex Kendrick for being in the film and giving a terrific performance!

God is working through these films.
