Product Description

In Being Good: Christian Virtues for Everyday life university professors--experts in theology and philosophy--explore what Being Good looks like on a practical level. Coming from a distinctively Christian perspective, the authors all believe that every Christian should try to embody the moral and intellectual virtues that Christ alone perfectly displayed. The chapters--on faith, open-mindedness, wisdom, zeal, hope, contentment, courage, love, compassion, forgiveness, and humility--include several discussion questions.

Publisher's Description

This volume offers a fresh, timely, practical look at eleven key Christian virtues: faith, open-mindedness, wisdom, zeal, hope, contentment, courage, love, compassion, forgiveness, and humility.

Writing from a distinctively Christian perspective, the authors thoughtfully explore and explain these select virtues, seeking to nurture readers in lifelong character growth and to promote the centrality of the virtues to the Christian faith. Grouped under the headings Faith, Hope, and Love, the chapters each conclude with questions for further reflection.

Editorial Reviews

Church Times
"A refreshingly good, scholarly, and practical collection. . . . The book raises important issues about how Christians should pursue ethical living."
 
Midwest Book Review 
"Written by a group of younger scholars who are experts in theology and philosophy. . . . The authors believe that embodying Christ’s values should be at the heart of Christian living, and they offer chapters headed by these virtues to discuss each and offer food for thought. Any Christian collection needs this!"
 
Church of England Newspaper
"Young Christian scholars, philosophers and theologians, look at how 11 selected virtues can be embodied in daily life. . . . Highly recommended."
