CHRISTIAN CHARACTER A guide for training young people to have the habits that will lead to Godly character.

God commands a Christian to "put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof." Rom. 13:14 The character of Jesus Christ is to be bound to the life of each Christian, and the lusts of the flesh, which are in opposition to the character of Jesus Christ, are to be denied. To "put on" involves a life-filling, minute-by-minute application of the Word of God-through which strength of character is built. A young person must be busily engaged in putting into practice principles from God's Word by forming habits of behaviors-these habits leading to character development.

Christian CharacterCHRISTIAN CHARACTER is a book for boys and girls that provides an intensive examination of the character that should be found in the lives of Christian young people. CHRISTIAN CHARACTER is Scriptural, practical, and convicting; clearly examining the lives of young people who use the book, and then guiding them in setting short-term, specific goals. Lam. 3:4 CHRISTIAN CHARACTER is strongly supportive of the family and the local church. CHRISTIAN CHARACTER can be used by parent, home schools, Christian schools, churches, mission schools, and children's homes with young people between the ages of ten and fourteen. This text also provides an excellent guide for family devotions for younger children. The student's text is 8 ½ by 11, 148 pages, spiral bound, and contains twenty-eight chapters. An answer key booklet contains teaching ideas and answers for the student text.

BOOK REVIEWS - "The author writes from a thoroughly fundamentalist perspective, strongly advocating scriptural principles as to behavior patterns and personal separation … the course is saturated with an abundance of Scriptural support … we are happy to recommend these books." "Aimed at turning immature boys into potentially spiritually strong men … we were definitely enthusiastic when we went over the course … this is a tremendous course for boys." "This book doesn't flinch from any of the 'tough' areas … good Biblical common sense."
