Godly character is the lifeblood for great discipleship. These experienced leaders, teachers, and authors fully address the key to whether Christian followers succeed—or fail—in their mission, challenging readers to shift from activity to relationship. Readers will understand the need for godly character where they serve, how to develop it in their lives and in others’, finding ways to allow God to shape them into His likeness. The authors walk with readers through dozens of individual case studies to draw God’s truth from the Bible’s narrative passages while bolstering readers’ ability to interpret Scripture in personal study. Any Christian—in the family, church, school, or in business—is rewarded with examination of how God chooses, develops, and cooperates with us to accomplish His plans.
