We've all heard the saying, "too much of a good thing." This can apply to many of the actions and behaviors that would be called "virtues." By overemphasizing certain traits, Christians can lose spiritual balance.
In this book, veteran counselor and author Ray Anderson offers a study of fourteen Christian virtues designed to help you develop the balance that is key to a mature Christian faith. After providing a detailed explanation of each virtue, Anderson gives a unique look at how to keep a good virtue from turning bad through overemphasis.
If you seek balance in your walk with Christ, 'Living the Spiritually Balanced Life' can help. Let it show you how to build up your spiritual well-being and to help others who are struggling on the same path take the first step toward a more fruitful spiritual life.
