Renovation of the Heart: An Interactive Student Edition: Putting on the Character of Christby Dallas Willard
Synopses & Reviews
A Spiritual Pit Stop. Imagine men: You recently purchased a new ride-a Ferrari V12, 540 horsepower, goes 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds. You're ready to take it for a spin, show it to all your friends, do some donuts in the parking lot. But before you get out of the driveway, you're grounded by three flat tires. Our spiritual lives can feel like this. We start out revved up, ready to rock and roll, only to find out that chasing after God involves overcoming plenty of setbacks. Together with other men in your small group, take steps to avoid crashing and burning out. Consider this eight-week Bible study a quick pit stop for tuning up your pursuit of God. Designed for small-group use (yet just as hospitable for a solo act), studies in THE REAL LIFE STUFF FOR MEN series don't demand a seminary-trained leader at the helm. These studies help participants discover personalized application and offer an accountability system to make sure the changes stick. Other thought-provoking titles in THE REAL LIFE STUFF FOR MEN series: Leaning into a Hail of Bullets, Treading Water in an Empty Pool, Juggling Chainsaws on a Tightrope
This book shows how to understand one of the most complicated and important lessons of life: putting on the character of Christ.

Don't just be a Christian. Be like Jesus. "Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that's where life starts." --Proverbs 4:23, The Message We don't become Christians to stay the way we are. Instead, we are to be apprentices of Jesus Christ--to become more like Him every hour, every day, every year. Sounds good, but how does it happen? For starters, Christ's vision for your life starts from the inside out, not "outside in" like many Christians try to make it. That's because becoming an apprentice of Christ isn't like cramming for a test or trying to say the "right things" at church. It's a revolution of the heart that transforms your motives and perspectives. Respected authors Dallas Willard and Randy Frazee reach out to students with this promise: become like Christ and you'll discover the true purpose of your life. In other words, don't settle for being a Christian--learn to be like Jesus.
