Overview

Are you ready to grow personally and spiritually? Are you committed to developing your moral character worthy of your calling in Christ? Have you ever asked important questions about the human nature, about yourself? If yes, you are in the right place.

The Diamond Soul is a self-help book for Christians who want to learn more about how to transform their moral character to mimic Christ's own. It encourages the readers to discover who they really are, how to select a righteous path in life, and how to use personal discipline and willpower to achieve their goals.

The Diamond Soul describes the process of striving towards a faultless moral character under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The book highlights the deliberate, systematic, and orderly method necessary to guarantee its success. It offers step-by-step instructions during one's evolution from an ordinary Christian into a highly moral, mighty warrior in Christ.

Description

Ever wanted to learn more about how to transform your character to mimic Christ's? Have you ever wondered about morality and its role in today’s society? About the interplay between faith and reason, and the importance of the moral character in shaping one's destiny? In this newly released, self-help book, I will show how to build a Christlike character, which I call the Diamond Soul, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 

Why do we need divine guidance? First, because we are believers, and second, because we cannot do such a huge task alone. The Diamond Soul is the result of the cooperative yet mysterious work of the Holy Spirit residing in us, and ourselves. We provide the know-how, the sweat, and the perseverance. The Holy Spirit provides the guidance. The result? Your transformation from an ordinary believer into a highly moral mighty Warrior in Christ.

 At the same time, I realize that the know-how, processes, and methods necessary to undertake such a massive project can only be based on science. For this reason, I draw on the fields of applied psychology, neuroscience, and human behavior. I use the latest findings regarding the undeniable bond between thoughts, emotions, and conduct. To which I add my personal observations about the role spirituality plays in this extremely complicated and volatile mix. 

In The Diamond Soul, 5 Stepping Stones to Christlike Character, I use two metaphors. The first is the image of a beautifully cut, strong, and valuable diamond, to help people visualize their character crafted after Jesus' own.  The second depicts the arduous path up a mountain slope, using stepping stones found along the way, leading to the valuable diamond located on the peak. They cannot exist without another. You cannot reach the diamond on the summit unless you climb the mountain toward it. Conversely, if you climbed any other mountain, your efforts will have been in vain.

This book is based on my experience and struggle in finding God and developing a moral character aspiring to the like Christ's. The battle has transformed my life and made me a better person. The new moral authority, which the Diamond Soul character afforded me, had a tremendous impact on the people around me, be they family members, friends, employees, or business associates.
