Christian Character gives practical helps for the young person to form habits in conformity with God's word. The book begins with an examination of the person's character, then guides him in setting short-term, specific goals for improvement in areas of weakness. The book should have broad appeal, as each of the 28 chapters addresses a different character trait, from compassion to thankfulness. The book is most effective when used with the support of family and the local church. In addition to individual use, the book can also serve as the basis for family devotions or Bible classes.
