Sinopsis: Organized around twenty-two virtuous character traits—including humility, discretion, diligence, generosity, faith, and love—this book provides concrete examples of each virtue and offers practical suggestions for their development.
From the Back Cover:
"Be patient always." But what about when our prayers seem to go unanswered?
"Seek peace." But what about when good intentions don't result in a resolution?
"Be humble." But what about when no one gives us the acknowledgment we deserve?
It's hard to be good, especially when everything—and everyone—around us seems to be going from bad to worse. How can Christians live the virtuous life that God has called us to?
With candor and clarity, James Spiegel explores twenty-two different traits of a person with excellent character, including: humility, kindness, generosity, wit, justice, patience, courage, peace, gratitude, faith, and love. Each chapter features concrete examples and practical steps for developing specific virtues. This is more than a book of suggestions—this is a manual for how to be "blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation..." (Phillip. 2:14).
“This book is a workout for the Christian soul. It will stretch you in ways you did not think possible, but after reading it you will feel stronger in the faith than ever before.”
