Why would anyone want to be a servant?
The word itself brings images to mind of a lowly, abused slave-a "lower rower," as author Charles Stanley puts it.  Yet the fact is that the King of the Universe lowered Himself and became a Servant of servants-and He commands His followers to do the same.
"I am the most like Jesus,"  Charles Stanley writes, "when I serve others."  That is the central premise of this Bible study guide:  Christians become fully like the Lord Jesus only when they serve others.
This Bible study will equip you to serve the people around you:  family, co-workers, neighbors-the people that you interact with every day.  You will find very practical suggestions and principles here, all drawn directly from the Word of God.  This book will train you to become more like Christ.
Features Include:
  • Features teachings from one of America's best-loved pastors and theologians
  • Topical studies filled with life application principles
  • For individual study or to be shared with a small group

The content may have been good...but it was dry and difficult to get into. It was one of those books that I had to ask myself if it was worth the time I would have to invest to complete it. Read full review

Review: Developing a Servant's Heart

User Review  - Nancy Bresette - Christianbook.com

This study seems geared for new believers. My adult study group, who has been together for years, feels it is a bit simplistic. I also felt more Scripture references would have been helpful for those wishing to dig deep into God's word. Read full review
