Publisher's Summary

Unlock the secret of your personality and learn how to be a better spouse, parent, friend, & Christian!

All of us are born with distinct personality traits. Some of us live for crowds and parties; others seek solitude and time for quiet reflection. Some of us are naturally pushy, while others are content just to get along. We don't pick and choose these traits; they're just part of the way we're made.

For in the womb God doesn't merely mold our body; He also gives us the temperament that, all our days, colors our understanding, guides our choices, and serves as the foundation of our moral and spiritual life.

Ancient philosophers identified four basic temperaments, and over the centuries, countless wise souls have used these four to understand human nature. Now comes The Temperament God Gave You, the first Catholic book on the subject in 70 years. Here veteran Catholic counselor Art Bennett and his wife Laraine provide an accessible synthesis of classical wisdom, modern counseling science, and Catholic spirituality: a rich understanding of the temperaments and what they mean for you and for your family.

Drawing on decades of study, prayer, and practical experience, Art and Laraine show you how to identify your own temperament and use it to become what God is calling you to be: a loving spouse, an effective parent, and a good friend. Best of all, they give you a Catholic understanding of the four temperaments that will bring you closer to God and help you discover the path to holiness that's right for you.

Peace. Happiness. Holiness.

You'll find yourself growing in each of these qualities as you come to understand, and learn to use as you should, the temperament God gave you.

    "Much more valuable for my Catholic Friends"
    What did you like best about The Temperament God Gave You? What did you like least?

    Great study on Temperaments; Thorough and well supported with examples. There were several editing errors: mostly flubbed lines that were re-read, but the flubbed lines were not removed.

    The author's strong reliance to Catholic doctrine and traditions was distracting for me, a evangelical Protestant. Would have appreciated more reference to bible characters and less to "Saints"


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Looking for personal growth, so will probably just browse.


    What three words best describe Kevin Archer’s performance?

    Clear, precise and well-paced


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
