Glittering Vices

Full Product Description

Contemporary culture trivializes the 'seven deadly sins', or vices, as if they have no serious moral or spiritual implications.

"Glittering Vices" clears this misconception by exploring the traditional meanings of gluttony, sloth, lust, and others. It offers a brief history of how the vices were compiled and an eye-opening explication of how each sin manifests itself in various destructive behaviors. Readers gain practical understanding of how the vices shape our culture today and how to correctly identify and eliminate the deeply rooted patterns of sin that are work in their own lives.

This accessible book is essential for any reader interested in spiritual disciplines and character formation.

Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung (PhD, University of Notre Dame) is associate professor of philosophy at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She wrote the "seven deadly sins" entry for the Encyclopedia of Christianity and collaborated with two of her seminary students to develop a high school/college curriculum on the subject.

Glittering Vices by Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung was published by Brazos Press in June 2009 and is our 30608th best seller. The ISBN for Glittering Vices is 9781587432323.
