The Character of the Christian: Book, Study Guide, and Slides

D.A. Carson has pointed out that the list of qualifications for elders is “remarkable for being unremarkable.” Why? Because these traits are repeated elsewhere as qualities that ought to characterize all believers.

Are you growing in godliness? How would you even know?

A good place to begin is understanding and imitating the character qualifications the Bible lays out for elders. While elders are meant to exemplify these traits, all Christians are to display them. And, with just one exception, each of them is related to character.

Join me as I explore the Bible to consider how we can better exemplify the highest Christian virtues. As we consider the character of the Christian, we will spur one another on to love, good works, and Christlikeness. You can purchase The Character of the Christian here.

Also for sale from Visual Theology is a study guide and presentation slide bundle for small group or Bible study use. Purchase the study guide and presentation slides here.
