Ron Meyers: Habits of Highly Effective Christians
Using personal anecdotes from years in foreign missions work, the author shares rich biblical insights into familiar subjects. He makes fasting doable, tells how to pray in the will of God, elevates obedience as the highest criterion for God's rewards, and defines personal success in terms that eliminate the pride and intimidation that result from comparisons with others. This book turns selfdiscipline into a wonderful key for personal growth, and crises into stepping stones for self-development. These habits can change your outlook, maybe even your world. A companion Bible Study Guide is also available. "If you want to be challenged to think deeper, go further, and live your Christian faith more fully and fruitfully, then run to get this book. With his direct and plainspoken application of Scripture and lessons learned from his own rich life, he will make you think anew about yours. This book will change you. I promise." —BARBARAWOLFER, HOUSEWIFE, ZEALOUS CHRISTIAN, AND ENGLISH PROFESSOR. "Ron Meyers' book is a superb resource for maturing Christians who want to be challenged, encouraged, and counseled in living lives that count for Christ. This warm and readable work has all the humanity of a man in love with his Lord and his subject. It is witty and wise, and I heartily recommend it." —WAYNE MARTINDALE, AUTHOR, C.S. LEWIS SCHOLAR, AND PROFESSOR OF ENGLISH LITERATURE AT WHEATON COLLEGE.
