Christians, as well as all men and women, are called to holiness and happiness, but everyone struggles to take the practical steps necessary to overcome the vices that rob us of our peace and steal our joy. The WillPower Advantage shows that we need to renew our minds with the truth about ourselves in order to develop the good habits we need to handle the challenges we face. We are not called to be passive; we are called to use our will and our strength to receive God's grace and transform the world, beginning with ourselves.
The WillPower Advantage helps people to build the virtues they need by providing practical wisdom from ancient and contemporary sources. The book includes a Spiritual Audit, which identifies a person's temperament along with its strength's and weaknesses. The virtues each temperament needs to work on are then presented systematically with practical tips for strengthening them.
