"This won't be an easy read for some, but it is a worthy one. You'll nurture high-level discussions that may be best to take place among your leaders, parents or in a weekend seminar setting. Still there are several practical steps that can give you traction for applying it personally or in your ministry."--Tony Myles, YouthWorker Journal, January/February 2014
"The experienced teacher and administrator shows how intellectual attributes like courage, carefullness, tenacity, honesty, fair-mindedness, and humility enrich not only our studies but also our contributions in every realm of life."--Matt Reynolds, Christianity Today, June 2013
"Dow has given Christian educators a commendable, thoughtful, quality book that merits wide readership, especially for those interested in intellectual character development. Works of this kind, especially from a Christian perspective, are truly needed, and this book is a valuable contribution to the field of literature on character education."--Christopher Beckham, Modern Reformation, March/April 2014
"A timely and thoughtful work for parents and pastors, teachers and students--anyone who thinks education is more about the quality of character than about the quantity of facts."--Light Magazine Canada, June 2013
"Dow amply proves that intellectual character has a tremendous impact on the direction our lives take, whether personally, socially, or professionally. . . . I recommend this book to Christian English teachers who hope to have a godly impact on their students' intellectual development."--Cristy Brink, International Journal of Christianity and English Language Teaching, Volume 3 (2016)
