Character Matters Jun 4, 2008
What an amazing book. This is a book every person should read. Dr. Rutland has done an excellent job of identifying the character traits we all need and how to implement them in our lives. This book would be especially good for any graduating senior.
A Great Personal Devotional or Small Group Study Apr 14, 2007
It's an easy read with a lifetime's worth of wisdom. Dr. Rutland presents profound simplicity in ten snapshots of Godly character traits that the Lord seeks to engrave into His children. In his his signature fashion, Rutland uses humor and masterful word-pictures to bring these qualities to life. Obvious ones like "honesty" are there, along with some very interesting insights into others such as "reverence", "meekness" and "frugality." They're not necessarily what you think.
The book makes a social statement regarding the society in which we live, but more importantly, it cuts to the heart with personal application. I just finished teaching through it with a Wednesday evening class of men and it is great for such. It would work equally well with women.
Both Biblical and practical Feb 23, 2005
We are using this book for a small group study in our church and it is EXCELLENT. The principles are straight from the Bible and the practical application is easily grasped through Rutland's very picturesque stories and examples of the concepts being applied to every day situations. He uses a good balance of the Word of God and the application of it.
Very humbling yet educating and uplifting Feb 14, 2004
I have just finished reading this book and it truly humbled me. Here I was thinking of myself quite highly and doing the "right" things. When measured on some simple outlines with great real life examples I had to admit that I was truly lacking and in desperate need for a refocusing of my commitment to God and His plan for me, my character and the influence I have on the people around me. I highly recommend this book!
