Overview

All of us are born with distinct personality traits. Some of us live for crowds and parties; others prefer solitude, where we dream the day away. Some of us are naturally pushy; others are content just to get along. We can�t really change these traits; they�re just part of the way we were made. For in the womb God molds not only our bodies; He gives us each the temperament that, all our days, will determine our reactions, guide our choices, color our understanding, and serve as the foundation of our moral and spiritual life. Ancient philosophers identified four basic temperaments, and over the years countless books have been written about them. Now comes The Temperament God Gave You, the first Catholic book on the subject in more than 70 years. Here veteran Catholic counselor Art Bennett and his wife Laraine provide a rich, accessible synthesis of classical wisdom, modern counseling science, and Catholic spirituality: a fully Catholic understanding of the temperaments and what they mean for you and those you love. You�ll learn how to identify your own temperament and ensure it becomes what God intends it to be: the particular means by which you are called to be a loving spouse, an effective parent, and a genuine friend. Most importantly, your new understanding of the four temperaments will bring you closer to God and help you find the path to holiness that is 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.
