A scholar calls those in ministry and the academy to excellence in the Christian virtues.
We are called to excellence in all aspects of our lives and activities, and not least in our character. Andreas Kostenberger summons all Christians, and especially aspiring pastors, scholars, and teachers, to a life of virtue lived out in excellence.
Kostenberger moves through Christian virtues chapter by chapter, outlining the Bible's teaching and showing how Christ-dependent excellence in each area will have a profound impact on one's ministry and scholarship. Virtues covered include grace, courage, integrity, creativity, eloquence, humility, diligence, and service.
This unique book is an important character check for all Christians engaged in teaching and ministry, and especially for those in training. Kostenberger's thoughtful volume will be a valuable touchstone for readers, for one's character is a critical matter in both scholarship and ministry.
