Editorial Reviews

Review

 "Character. Integrity. Honesty. Trustworthiness.  A quick glance across the landscape of North America confirms the serious erosion of these virtues.  Yet God's Word exhorts us to uphold these standards as a reflection of His righteousness.  I applaud the careful, challenging and thoroughly biblical approach of Charles Dyer in this important work, 'Character Counts'.  Its convicting message represents a needed rallying call for the church today."

J. Paul Nyquist, Ph.D.
President
Moody Bible Institute


In a world where star power and expediency often trump character, Charlie Dyer's book becomes a significant voice for those of us who know that being a part of the Jesus Nation demands higher and purer standards. Thanks, Charlie... we needed this!

Joe Stowell, President
Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan


Few people have a better grasp of Biblical history than Dr. Charles Dyer, so it didn't surprise me when so much truth was compacted into such a readable and practical book. Dr. Dyer helps us become the kind of people who please God and love people with real-life integrity. This is an excellent resource to meet our greatest need.

Chip Ingram, President of Living on the Edge and Senior Pastor of Venture Christian Church, Los Gatos, CA



George Washington once said, "Few men have integrity to withstand the highest bidder," a colossal barrier that chokes our effectiveness in human relationships. Charlie Dyer has cut through this obstacle with a path to personal integrity from the Holy Scriptures. Here is a book that should be required reading for every student, from prep students to senior seminarians. None of us ever outgrows his or her need for a review of this essential lifetime subject.
Howard G. Hendricks
Distinguished Professor
Chairman, Center for Christian Leadership
Dallas Theological Seminary

This book is a stone. To be more precise, it's a whetstone. As you interact with the concepts in this book, you will be sharpening the blade of your personal integrity on the whetstone of biblical truth. My integrity edge was sharper when I finished this book; I think yours will be, too.
Steve Farrar
Founder and Chairman, Men's Leadership Ministries


God desires to reproduce the life of Christ in every believer. By examining the lives of biblical characters who exemplified aspects of godliness and by studying the pertinent passages of Scripture, the author, in a clear, concise, convincing, and often in a convicting way, sets forth the qualities which characterize a godly life. A must for those who desire to fulfill God's will for their lives, "even our sanctification" (1 Thessalonians 4:3).
Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost
Distinguished Professor of Bible Exposition, Emeritus
Dallas Theological Seminary


Charlie Dyer has artfully mixed reflection and action, Scripture and relevance, theory and reality to produce a combat manual for those who battle with maintaining personal integrity. As he processes contemporary options to moral compromise through the eternal grid of the Bible, we learn that the issues are not that new after all. God's prescriptions stand for us now as they did when they were written.
Dr. Ramesh Richard
President, RREACH International
Professor of Pastoral Ministries and World Missions & Intercultural Studies
Dallas Theological Seminary

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book on living a life of integrity. The author combines instruction with illustration as he shows how character traits were lived out by great men and women of the Bible. The book is well-written, easy to read, and inspirational. I highly recommend!

the writing of this book seems to remain on the surface of a topic which would suggest to the reader that it is a good read for a new christian, but for someone more advanced in the faith, it is on a primary level. i do like that it addresses the issue of character which is overlooked in the life of the majority of people. People just don't normally think about the fact that their day to day activities, habits, beliefs and behaviors carve out their character and that it is important to make character building a life work.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This wonderful book is both riveting, and compelling...Once I picked it up, I had a hard time putting it down until I had finished it...Each chapter seemed better than the last, in both the detailed stories of people in the Bible,such as Abraham, Ruth, David and Solomon, including personal reflections, from the very likeable author, Charlie Dyer. The book informs, challenges and encourages you to fulfill God's will for your life. I'm buying one for each of my grandchildren, ages 10-26. I recommend it to everyone who strives to lead a life more pleasing to Christ.
