Of course you try to do your best when others are watching.
But what about when you are alone? That's when character really counts--when it's just between you and God.
Six studies, drawn from Bill Hybels's Who You Are When No One's Looking, focus on the qualities that are the foundation of character: courage, discipline, vision, endurance, compassion and self-sacrifice. With this foundation and God's guidance, you can do your best at all times--even when you face temptations and troubles, even when no one is watching.
The Christian Basic Bible Studies are designed for use by individuals or groups, and are based on bestselling InterVarsity Press books. The NIV text is included for each study, along with background notes and guidelines for group leaders. (You won't need to refer to the book from which the study is drawn in order to get the most out of the study.)
Focusing on the application of Scripture to real life and covering topics basic to Christian discipleship, Christian Basics Bible Studies are an excellent resource for new believers, high-school and college groups, and Sunday school classes. They will be appreciated as well by all who want to delve deeper into the issues raised by the influential books on which the study guides are based.
