"There must be more to the Christian life than this-more than church each Sunday and waving to my neighbors and giving some clothes to Goodwill when I go through my closet each spring."
These aren't bad things, of course. But they're safe and comfortable and easy. And there's a reason they're not satisfying your desire for something more significant and meaningful-we're created by God for adventure.
International Justice Mission president Gary Haugen has found that engaging in the fight for justice is the most deeply satisfying way of life. This book shows how we too can be a part of God's great expedition.

Review quote

"This book is a strong call for every Christian to deepen their walk with God. I encourage you to read this book and seek God's direction for the next step of service in your life!"

Jim Fretheim, Imprints, Winter 2009

"Filled with inspiring stories. Haugen challenges modern Christians."

DKW, Libraries Alive, Summer 2009

"Haugen predicts that the American church is on the verge of an awakening to justice. Fighting oppression means going into dark places, but he encourages us to find the strength and courage to obey God's commands. Just Courage forces us to answer the question, 'Would you rather be safe or brave?'"
