Description

The second in a series of books of 'serious theology for a popular audience', this volume looks at a classic strand of Christian teaching, largely unknown today though making a significant comeback. An ancient way of thinking about good and evil, the 'Seven Virtues' are: prudence (serving God wisely), justice (fairness to all), temperance (maximising happiness by avoiding the discomforts of excess), courage (freedom from being swayed to set our own ideals and pursue them), faith (the imagination to trust the unseen), hope (the strongest of all the emotions), and love (the imitation of the intimacy within the Trinity). Here is a readable, informed and engaging guide for living, offering a vision for Christian ethics that is not mired down in headline issues.
