Plattville, IL (PRWEB) February 25, 2016 -- Patrick K Skinner’s new book, The Proverbs Project for Character Development In All Nations - Becoming Wiser & Reflecting a Right Light, ($23.99, paperback, 9781498455312; $9.99, e-book, 9781498455329) offers 48 short topical chapters for greater character focus and understanding Proverbs 19:8 in the Holman Christian Standard Bible – including the Fruit of the Spirit as seen in Proverbs. The author stresses that a lack of respect or self-love in one state has led more than 300 a year to die from heroin overdoses. A wise person is educated in the fullest sense: they know and accept God, they have a purpose for their lives and they serve others while relating in healthy ways. Proverbs defines healthy ways to relate to God and others. This book provides a tool to show how topical Proverbs could be of help in bringing character development in all the cultures/nations of the world. Each topical section gives a pithy or concise definition for the topical moral terms along with an introductory explanation. It asks thought questions to prepare the reader for the content, lists the verses to be read, asks questions for the reader to answer, and much, much more. Through reading and study plans for 9 months or a year, this book is ideal for schools, small groups or personal daily devotions.
“Readers will gain a working knowledge of what is moral and virtuous in 48 areas of character development,” states the author. “This will help parents, religious leaders of all faiths, coaches, policeman and prison guards, chaplains and counselors to gain character development tools that will decrease violent and lawless behavior. It will turn the ‘me’ generation toward others and God, will give an objective basis for parenting and guiding behavior that will bring peace between groups with huge external differences.”
