Chiseled: A Young Man's Guide to Shaping Character, True Toughness and a Life That Matters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you know the difference between being a “guy ” and being a man? The key is to live by a code. When you know and respect the codes for being a man, you hold the principles that will guide you into the life you were meant to lead. It starts at a specific point in time —when you get facedown before God and He begins to chisel whatever needs to go. Getting “facedown” is not about you kissing the floor; it’s a heart attitude that allows God to shape and hone your chin of steel—your character—to a fine and durable strength that can take all the punches life throws at you. In Chiseled, authors Shaun Blakeney and Marcus Brotherton will help you develop your code by examining the truths of timeless instruction from the Bible; by looking at the beliefs, behaviors and attitudes that can harm you; and by showing you what it means to develop a wise and skillful approach to living. Their stories reveal important stuff they’ve learned only through trial and error. You can have a better life when you trade being a guy for stepping forward in maturity. It’s your code for life.

Synopsis:

Meet the author of the words above; an ordinary woman who was used in extraordinary ways to shape the lives of some of the most influential Christians of our time. Dr. Henrietta Mears had one purpose—to know Christ and make Him known—and inspired a generation of college kids to aspire to Christian leadership. The legendary Billy Graham, Bill Bright and 400 others went into Christian service, guided by Dr. Mears. Through them, the influence of her teaching ministry still reverberates today. Experience some of Dr. Mearss energy and passion to believe the impossible! Youll also hear how she established Gospel Light, Forest Home and Gospel Light International (GLINT) and was instrumental in many organizations such as Campus Crusade. See what God can do through a life that is totally surrendered to Him-— and imagine what He can do with your life.

Synopsis:

Meet the author of the wise words above and the woman who shaped the lives of some of the most influential Christians of our time. Dr. Mears poured the energy of her mission—to know Christ and make Him known—into a generation of college kids who would leave a legacy of Christian leadership that can still be felt worldwide today. In these pages, you will experience some of Dr. Mearss energy and passion to believe the impossible, which is no small thing, since she established Gospel Light, Forest Home and GLINT (Gospel Light International) and was instrumental in many organizations like Campus Crusade. Here is a winsome perspective of what God can do through a life that is totally surrendered to His purposes in the world.
