Length: 133 Pages

OVERVIEW

God uses honor in His covenants with mankind, and Jesus reflects honor in the New Testament. Throughout this study guide, Danny Silk defines and gives examples of how honor can be utilized in everyday life. This material is presented as a workbook, intended for readers to be actively engaged in solving problems, understanding scenarios, and developing interpersonal skills.

This book brought up a number of points I had never thought about before. Danny Silk’s unique writing asks for you, the reader, to apply your knowledge to what you have learned through the reading and through life. Foundations of Honor covers topics such as cultural differences, building and keeping healthy relationships, and being and an encourager of others. Definitions of various outcomes of the example events are listed, leaving it up to the reader to choose which is right in God’s eyes. The book could have used more illustrations and anecdotes to flesh out lessons, but being a workbook seemed to limit that.

ASSESSMENT

Christian Impact

Foundations of Honor would be a useful resource for pastors, small groups, and church study groups. The book relates details of the Christian faith, allowing critical thinking of real life situations. Silk puts a godly perspective on daily situations. Foundations of Honor is also excellent for self-reflection and prayer.
