More About the Author

Communicator, author, and pastor, ANDY STANLEY founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries in 1995. Today, NPM is comprised of six churches in the Atlanta area and a network of 30 churches around the globe, collectively serving over 60,000 people weekly. A survey of U.S. pastors in Outreach Magazine identified Andy Stanley as one of the top 10 most influential living pastors in America.

The author of 20-plus books, including The New Rules of Love, Sex, and Dating, Ask It, How to Be Rich, Deep & Wide, Enemies of the Heart, When Work & Family Collide, Visioneering, and Next Generation Leader, Andy Stanley holds two degrees, an undergraduate in journalism from Georgia State University and a Masters degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, the impact of which is all too evident in his written work.

In the digital world, his success reaches well beyond local Atlanta-area walls. Two million of Stanley's messages, leadership videos, and podcasts are accessed from North Point's website monthly.

In 2012, Your Move with Andy Stanley premiered on NBC after Saturday Night Live, giving him an even wider audience with which to share his culturally relevant, practical insight for life and leadership. In less than two years, over 36 million episodes have been viewed, underscoring Stanley's impact not only as a communicator but also as a cultural change agent.

But nothing is so personal as his passion for engaging with live audiences, which Stanley has pursued for over a decade, speaking at leadership events around the world. In high demand, he speaks at various events before a yearly audience of both church and organizational leaders of nearly 200,000, including conferences such as Catalyst, Leadercast, Exchange, and the WCA Global Leadership Summit.

"I cannot fill their cups," he often says of the opportunity to impact leaders in business and in ministry, "but I have a responsibility to empty mine."

Andy Stanley and his wife, Sandra, have three grown children and live near Atlanta.

This is an excellent book, but I cannot recommend the Kindle edition. Again, it's a good read, but buy the paperback.
I suspect that this electronic version was published without being proofread. There were so many mistakes throughout the book--e.g., missing apostrophes, "you'll" rendered as "you 11," and other words that were unintelligible--that it was distracting. There were times when I had to consult my husband's paper copy just to make sure I understood a sentence or phrase as it should have been written. Please understand that the comprehension difficulties had nothing to do with Mr. Stanley's argument or writing style, they were completely due to a horrible rendering of the text into the Kindle version.
I enjoy my Kindle. I prefer to read on it. However, I find it extremely frustrating when I come across a book that has been released with so many mistakes. No editor worth her salt would allow this to happen in the "paper world," why should it be allowed in the e-world?

I challenge you to read this book. Even if you are none of the things above, chances are you know someone who is. So buy the book for them (but read through a bit yourself).

Andy writes like a person carrying on a conversation with you. He constructs scenarios that leave you with a handful of questions, and then he answer them one at a time with practical advice and scriptural support.

This is a book about integrity and character. Andy provides real solutions that you can start implementing in your life immediately to start combating each character issue. You will see yourself, and the people around you, very differently after reading this book. You won't regret this change.

I bought this book for each of the 11th grade guys in my small group. If you are a father, I recommend buying 2 copies and reading it along with your teenage son or daughter. Maybe schedule coffee every other week, and discuss one chapter per sitting.

Andy says that every day you are either growing closer to, or further away, from the person you want to be. This book is a guide for those who desire to be deliberate about becoming the person they wish they were all along.

This book was so well written and so applicable to my life, but to be honest, it would be so for pretty much any body's life. And to be completely honest with you, Andy Stanley is such a great speaker and writer that I recomend just about any sermon or book by him. He has such a unique, but basic view on things and how they should be, and he is very well gifted in getting them across. He can make something as "everyday" as the Lord's Prayer not just interesting, but captivating. So, to get back to the book, If you're looking to not just improve your character but actually understand what character is, this is the book for you.

A book about uncompromised living and character. Undeniably Character is the foundation of all true leadership. “An Overseer, then must be above reproach”
• Many personal catastrophes often start with compromised convictions, re-shuffled values, selfishness and veering of the path of rightness.
• Character is who you truly are
o It will impact who much you accomplish in this life
o It will determine whether or not you are worth knowing
o It will make or break every one of your relationships
• Biblical character is essential to healthy living and healthy relationships
• Book based on two basic tenets of faith
o God is the creator of all things
o You belong to him
• God has published an extensive user’s manual for us to follow, providing all the details for proper care and maintenance of his products,
• Character is the will to do what is right, as defined defined by God, regardless of the personal costs
o Character involves doing what is right because it is the right thing to do
o We must acknowledge there is an absolute standard of right and wrong
• The instant we compromise our character we experience guilt
• Guilt is a byproduct of failing to meet our own standards, it feels unworthy or unreliable.

If Andy Stanley has written a lousy book I have yet to read it! Louder Than Words is a contemporary call to pursuing a "life with no regrets." For Stanley, the plumb line against which all else is measured is God's Word - the Bible. He clearly identifies his firm belief that the Bible provides us with an absolute standard of right and wrong. Basing your character on that standard is the key.

Notice that there are two essential ingredients for character. First, character demands a commitment to do what is right in spite of what it might cost us personally....Second. we must acknowledge that there is an absolute standard of right and wrong - one that exists independent of our own emotions, experiences, or desires. This standard is a permanent, unwavering benchmark by which we can measure our choices. p.31

You may not like the idea of absolutes and prefer to approach life situationally by applying a wide range of standards to each situation. To me that seems like an incredible waste of time - trying to apply ever-changing standards to every different situation. How does that really work? It's okay to speed 5-10 mph over the limit but more than that is wrong? It's okay to keep a little extra change that the clerk mistakenly gave you but stealing $100 from the tip jar is wrong? How do you decide how much is okay?

For the committed follower of Jesus there is a deep desire to develop character that honors God and imitates Jesus. For most of us the struggle comes in figuring out how that works. According to Stanley it happens through the process of renewing your mind. His comments here were very pointed:

Putting on the new often entails taking a different approach to the Bible.
