How to Lead & Develop Godly Men of Character

The Men of Character Bundle offers serious and practical help from the lives of 12 role models found in the Bible who can be described as “men of character.”

An intense Bible study on the lives of Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David, Nehemiah, Elijah, Daniel, the Apostles, and Paul, the Men of Character Bundle can be used for sermons, small groups, and solo studies. While these men were favored by God, this isn’t a sanitized study of flawless men. Their sad mistakes, sins, and acts of selfishness teach as much as their acts of faith.

Each Men of Character volume is divided into 12 or 13 chapters following the life of the character. This makes it perfect for weekly small group studies. There is enough material to last over two years.

Staff Pick – Men of Character: Joseph

MOCJosephEach week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

The best book I have read recently is Joseph from the Men of Character series by Gene Getz. It’s a great Bible study manual, and it’s written in that creative leader building style that Gene has been known for over the past five decades.

I love biographies, I love to read how people overcome adversity and I love to learn stuff. I also relate to Joseph’s trials. I was the last of five brothers, who all shared one bedroom. I was seven years younger than the closest brother next to me, and I was also a victim of older sibling torture.

This book has renewed my spirit again and again and has reminded me how using biblical principals instead of fights can produce better relationships and champion over any attacks and trials in my life.
