Living a life of integrity is a choice and one that requires purpose and a decision to walk daily with God. Herein lies the challenge Howard Hendricks and eleven other contributing writers present to men in A Life of Integrity.
This book is a collection of messages presented by a formidable group of Christian leaders, including Luis Palau, Chuck Colson, the late Bill Bright, and others who were involved in launching the Promise Keepers movement. Hendricks, chairman of the Center for Christian Leadership and a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, and the other writers have each written one section in this 12-chapter book. It can be read individually or studied as a group.
The pages here are filled with illuminating words that invite men to experience what it means to be at the center of God's will. The writers set out to dissect topics that men who want to live lives of character and commitment should embrace, such as how to walk with God, being a man of God's word, and setting a godly example for other people. At the end of each chapter are study questions that help readers apply principles from the book to their lives. They are questions that require genuine self-examination and accountability.
Hendricks and the other writers in this book successfully communicate their enthusiasm for the realistic precepts they discuss. This publication is timely. It should be read and reread by all men who desire to lead godly and holy lives. -- James C. Hendrix, Ph.D., Christian Book Previews.com
