Format: Paperback
This is absolutely the best book out there for developing Christian Character in children.

Building Christian Character examines 22 Scriptural elements of character and then gives examples of positive and negative character traits.

Honor is contrasted with dishonor, responsibility with irresponsibility, etc.

Each character trait is also divided into subcategories. Example: the positive trait of being responsible is divided into bringing a job to completion, working as unto the Lord, being diligent.

Building Christian Character shows us and our children what it looks like when a child is showing scriptural character traits. And because a bad attitude can be comprised of so many different facets, we are shown that too.

Not just for use within the classroom, a strong Sunday School program for elementary school age students could be developed by using this important book along with memory verses and a Bible study.

This needs to be required reading for home educators and Christian School educators alike.

Format: Paperback
This is the most detailed exposition on Christian character I have seen for children. The version I found at a friend's (and now want to order) is from 2006, so more recent than this one. It is 374 pages, with (for example) 63 pages devoted to honor/dishonor, with quite a few and very helpful sub-topics, such as overfamiliarity, loquacity (talking too much), and not discerning the business of parents.
Its main weakness is that it is more theory than practice. There are no proposed activities or ideas.

We have worn out our previous copy of this book. This is one of the top 5 books we have used in training our 8 children. If you are wanting to raise Godly children with Biblical values and character then this is the book you want.

Building Christian Character is a very good resource for parents and christian educators alike. Yet caution must be taken concerning the writer's sect and their belief system.
