About the book:

"Spirituality and the Christian Life series is a creative response to an urgent need of the Christian community to grow deeper and fuller into the life of the Spirit. It is becoming clearer every day that being a Christian in our society requires a strong commitment, a fervent dedication, and an unusual courage. More than ever, being a Christian means making a choice. It means choosing for peace, justice, faithfulness, self-sacrifice, and a radical charity. Such a choice can only be made on a firm basis of faith, hope, and love and with the lived experience of God's real and active presence in our lives. This series offers searching Christians new resources for the development of a mature spiritual life. The participants guarantee an approach that is ecumenical, intellectually sound, and deeply steeped in the rich treasures of the history of the Christian church." -Henri J.M. Nouwen

The Strengths of a Christian
Patience, perseverance, and self-control--these strengths provide the basis for a truly fruitful and expressive Christian life. Robert C. Roberts offers a thoughtful analysis of these traits as the ways Christians have to keep themselves steadfastly on the track of hope, faith, joy, thanksgiving, and love. Filled with vivid illustrations and concrete advice, this book reveals the strengths of Christians as powers which permit us to live with integrity and become definite individuals, not merely pawns of the social environment to be shaken by every passing impulse and mood.

ROBERT C. ROBERTS is Professor of Philosophy and Psychological Studies, Wheaton College, Illinois.
