Book Review

The Pillars of Christian Character by John MacArthur

This book looks at the most essential character traits or attitudes a faithful Christian should have. In particular the book focuses a chapter on each of the following:
  • Faith
  • Obedience
  • Humility
  • Selfless Love
  • Unity
  • Growth
  • Forgiveness and Blessing
  • Rejoicing
  • Gratitude
  • Strength
  • Self-Discipline
  • Worshiping God
  • Hope
This book is well wrote and researched. As always MacArthur describes his points with Scriptural truth. This book is easy enough for the beginning Christian to understand, but also powerful enough for the more mature Christian to continue their growth.

At the end of the book is a study guide for each chapter. It contains a brief summary of the chapter, a few questions to think about or discuss, a couple of topics to prayer about, and ways to apply the chapter in your life.

As mentioned, i would recommend this book to new or mature Christians.
