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. Contributors:

"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 Christs 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!"
