Product Description

What if the good life has less to do with prestige and plenty and more to do with prudence, hope and faith? Would you still want a guide to get there? Maybe the idea of a life based on the virtues creates an uneasy feeling. Too hard, you might think, too boring. Robert Lockwood sets the record straight in A Guy's Guide to the Good Life.

Lockwood weaves Scripture, Church teaching and everyday stories-from Babe Ruth's funeral to the author's doomed efforts to make the varsity basketball team-revealing the virtues for what they really are: a call to action and our tie to the living God.

The virtuous life isn't just the good life; it's the best life, the life you were made for.

Publisher's Description


What if the good life has less to do with prestige and plenty and more to do with prudence, hope and faith? Would you still want a guide to get there? Maybe the idea of a life based on the virtues creates an uneasy feeling. Too hard, you might think, too boring. Robert Lockwood sets the record straight in A Guy’s Guide to the Good Life.

Lockwood weaves Scripture, Church teaching and everyday stories—from Babe Ruth’s funeral to the author’s doomed efforts to make the varsity basketball team—revealing the virtues for what they really are: a call to action and our tie to the living God.

The virtuous life isn’t just the good life; it’s the best life, the life you were made for.
