By Peter Kreeft

"We have decreased all virtues to at least one: being great. And, we degree Jesus by way of our normal rather than measuring our common via Him." For the Christian, explains writer Peter Kreeft, being virtuous isn't really a method to the tip of enjoyment, convenience and happiness. advantage, he reminds us, is a note that implies "manly strength."

But how will we recognize once we are being meek--or simply cowardly? while is our anger righteous--and while is it a sin? what's the distinction among being virtuous--and basically moral? Back to Virtue clears up those and numerous different questions that beset Christians this present day. Kreeft not just summarizes scriptural and theological knowledge on major a holy existence, he contrasts Christian advantage with different moral structures. He applies conventional ethical theology to present-day dilemmas resembling abortion and nuclear armament.

Kreeft restores to us what used to be universal wisdom: the Seven lethal Sins have an antidote within the Beatitudes. through constructing an in depth distinction among the 2 units of behaviors, Kreeft bargains confirmed suggestions within the frequently bewildering means of discerning correct from incorrect as we circulate into the questionable mores of the twenty-first century. He presents a street map of advantage, a map for our earthly pilgrimage synthesized from the amassed knowledge of centuries of Christians, from Paul and the early Church Fathers via C.S. Lewis.
