Book Review: Louder Than Words

Filed under: Book Reviews — Neil @ 2:00 pm

I recently read Louder Than Words by Andy Stanley w/ a group of guys that I serve with.  It’s a really good read that I highly recommend.  It boils down to a study on character.  Stanley writes that it’s our character that is the backbone for our leadership.

The 1st chapter is 1 of my favorites.  It’s all about change.  He writes that everyday we are changing.  “Your character is not stagnant, but is either developing or deteriorating.  You are not the same person you were yesterday.”

He defines character as “the will to do what is right, as defined by God, regardless of personal cost.”  It’s the storms of life that God uses to develop our character.  The idea of obstacles shaping us is woven throughout the book & how God is more concerned w/ our development than He is in our happiness in the moment.

I’d recommend it to just about anyone.  It would be really good for men’s groups.  It could be used w/ mature high school or college students.  You can order a copy from Amazon by clicking here.
