This book will help identify character qualities that move us toward the character qualities of Jesus. Pursuing godly character is important; it is also rare. From my experience, more marriages, more churches, more relationships, and more work situations are destroyed by lack of character than from everything else combined. Lack of character allows such qualities as pride, deception, arrogance, rebellion, selfishness, distrust, and rudeness to run rampant. Knowledge alone is not the answer. Accountability alone is not the answer. Spiritual discipline alone is not the answer. All of these things can help develop character, but I have observed some knowledgeable, accountable, spiritually disciplined leaders, including myself, doing foolish things for lack of character. I am fairly confident that Jesus is not really impressed with how much we know, how accountable we are, or how many spiritual disciplines we practice regularly. I believe He is more excited about a humble, obedient heart that follows Him faithfully and trusts Him explicitly more than anything else. I want to have that kind of a heart, and I want each man I coach and mentor to have that kind of a heart. In fact, I want everyone to have that kind of a heart. As you and I spend quality time with God, this intimacy should produce radical character. The character of Jesus is radical compared to that of a typical Christ-follower, so if you and I are going to live like Jesus, we need to possess radical character qualities that resemble His. He told us to make disciples, those who think and act like He thinks and acts. That is radical.
