In stock


Robert Strand, one of the most successful authors in the CBA market, believes that an understanding of the qualities of a Christian deserve a close look. To that end, Strand has developed a nine-book study series on the fruits of the spirit, emphasizing not only that a properly-balanced Christian life must include love, joy, peace, patience, etc., but that God will judge us on our willingness to incorporate them into our daily walk. Written in Strand’s famous storytelling style, each book in the series includes study questions and special insights.

Praotes (Greek), meaning: Gentle, mild, meek, to be an inwrought grace of the soul.

Gentleness is not a normal, native plant growing out of the human soul. It is not a natural part of our makeup. It grows as the Holy Spirit nurtures it. Meekness is to be part of your makeup no matter what your temperament might be or has been. To today’s modern person, gentleness and meekness are not desirable character qualities. In contrast to that, there is hardly a single characteristic which you can name which will better distinguish the Christian from the rest of the world.

But the fruit of the spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.... — Galations 5:22–23

In these Bible studies from best-selling author Robert Strand, you will learn about yourself and how to relate to others as you gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be in Christ.

Beautiful book!
Review by Jessica
Skimming through this book (as we haven’t started this book as of now. We are reading One Blood for Kids at the moment), my kids will learn that gentleness isn’t a form of weakness. They will learn how Jesus has shown gentleness to others and there are very thought provoking questions that are asked all throughout this book. My girls and I will greatly benefit from this book! Thank you Master Books!
Review by Nancy
This book does a wonderful job of articulating the gentleness of Jesus and how we need to live a life like that.
Thought provoking study on gentleness
Review by Natalie
This book eloquently describes gentleness from a Christian perspective. It teaches practical application of gentleness in a world that values self over others.
Good application
Review by Heidi
I LOVE all of the hands on application and questions and thought spaces to write in. It re enforces the study.
A great study on an often misunderstood trait
Review by Karie
The first line in this book is, "Gentleness is not weakness!" It sets the tone for a good look at this fruit of the Spirit. The sections on gentleness in leadership and power are great to consider as you develop an understanding of gentleness. Often times, people don't think the two can co-exist. I also appreciate when an author examines the life of Christ to teach the fruits of the Spirit. There is no better example than He and I was happy to see the author take time to look at the gentle life of Christ.
