Building Christian Character Book
Here is a complete set of tools to help you "Build Christian Character" in your child. I say complete, because it combines a strong foundational study of both positive and negative character traits (Honor/Dishonor, Humility/Pride, etc.) with charting activities to track your child’s progress. Therefore, it has both a Bible study component as well as a "application in real life" component. There are three parts to this curriculum: the Guide, the Instruction Booklet, and the Charts.
The core of this curriculum is the Guide. It is a comprehensive study of character traits, presenting both the positive and negative sides of each character trait, or lack of it. There is significant teaching in this book and it is meant for instruction by the parents or self-study for older children. It is some of the most in-depth teaching on the elements of Christian character I have seen. This book can stand on its own and can be used as a great foundational study of Christian Character even without the charts (no longer available). Karen and I have used this in our home. We have found the Guide to be very helpful as a devotional.
Building Christian Character was completely revised and expanded in 2006, and the guide is now 364 pages in length. Chapters include Honor/Dishonor, Honesty/Dishonesty, Active Obedience/Disobedience, Responsibility & Faithfulness/Irresponsibility & Unfaithfulness, Good Stewardship/Bad Stewardship, Taking Initiative/Waiting to be Told, Humility/Pride, Kindness & Generosity/Meanness & Greed, Nonviolence & Nonresistance/Violence, Patience/Impatience, Sobriety/Foolishness, and Victory & Joy/Sulking & Pouting. Unfortunately, the Instruction Booklet and Charts are not available at this time; please call for updated information.
