Our character is the scene of great battles; it's the seedbed from which life-changing decisions arise. When we can extract and apply insights and wisdom from teh experiences of others, we are better equipped to handle our own failures and success--catalysts or our own defining moments--in God-pleasing ways.
Dan Schaeffer highlights defining moments of real people and real life situations, (through scripture) to encourage you and help you prepare for your own.
Excellant book and very informative; also offers reflection and questions for discussion.
One morning you wake up, totally unaware that today you will make a decision that will define your life for years to come, maybe forever. If you had known this moment was coming, you would have prepared for it; but you didn't. That moment is coming, and you won't be able to escape it. You can hope you will say or do the right thing, or you can prepare for that moment now.
