Reviews - What do customers think about Building Christ-like Character?
Excellent for Groups or Individuals. Sep 21, 2004
I personally found this Bible study to be excellent for both small-group and individual self study and reflection.
Each study includes an inspiring witness to ordinary people displaying Christ-like character. Each witness story is followed by a thought provoking self-assessment and a reflective Bible study. The capstone of each study helps you set a concise, attainable goal reinforcing one Christ-like character principle (love, respect, grace, giving, fairness, integrity, courage, and responsibility). Each week's goal will have you reinforcing a new Christ-like character principle, helping you lead a more Christ-like life.
The authors obviously put a lot of thought and effort into the layout and structure of this Bible study. Well done! The stories provide inspiration, the Holy Bible provides wisdom, and the exercises provide spark and energy. Together these elements help you become accountable and build your more Christ-like character. This study helped me "raise the bar" to become more Christ-like in all that I am and do.
Generates great discussion for groups Sep 14, 2004
We used a this work for an inter-faith Lenten weekly worship/study event between two neighboring churches. It was a very effective way to generate good discussions about living out a life of faith and character in our daily lives. The stories, written by real, everyday people, helped everyone relax into the conversation. They were easy to relate to. Plus Britzman's thought-provoking questions made us think about what it means to be Christ-like in ways that are practical and real, not sanctamonious and unattainable. Good stuff. Try it in groups or for your own personal study.
