I read this book 30 years ago when a new Christian and the principles and scriptures have literally transformed my life. Tim LaHaye helps the reader to really understand himself from a Biblical perspective, and that is the crux of learning how to walk in the Spirit and be controlled by the Holy Spirit. I also read his book, How to Study the Bible For Yourself and the scripture memory is transforming as well. My husband is reading this book now (finally) and it is helping him greatly. And CBD has the best price and the best service!
I had read the first edition years ago and was glad to get this new one and read it too! It helped me and my wife to understand ourselves and each other much better and brought greater harmony to our marriage!
This book has proved to be the best personal enlighting book I have ever studied. It helped me understand myself and other people so much better. It has even made me become a better manager, sister and overall learned to deal with myself and with other people.
This book also helped me learn my strengths - these I am now capitalising on and my weaknesses- which I am now working to strengthen. It has also helped me know which people I can work with most easily and most effeciently and which type of people I can assign to certain tasks.
Overall this book should be read on a regular basis, as a guide or script for day to day life
Tim LaHaye does a great job defining the different temperaments and giving Biblical examples of each. The strengths and weaknesses are given to show how the Holy Spirit can help each of us overcome the way we were created.
This book really helped me understand more about my strengths & weaknesses, and how to recognize them. More importantly, it has helped me understand how to really engage in the Holy Spirit. By strengthening my relationship with the Holy Spirit, I am confident I'll make some life changes and grow spiritually.
