Product Description

At a time when principles animate so much moral talk in professional life, Virtues for Ordinary Christians offers virtue as the starting point for doing moral reflection and for giving moral advice. When most ethicists are suggesting that the primary ethical question for today is "What should I do?," Keenan asks, "Who should I be?" Taking familiar patterns from ordinary life family, schools, parishes, business Keenan weaves one virture after another through the fabric of human existence. Along the way he offers not only the traditional virtues charity, justice, temperance, courage, fortitude but also some new ones: fidelity, self-esteem, hospitality gratitude and truthfulness.

Publisher's Description

Simplifying the practice of virtue is what James Keenan does so well in Virtues for Ordinary Christians. This moral theologian sees beyond the do s and don ts of moral codes and reclaims the practice of virtue for the sheer joy of it. Virtue, he shows, brings out the Christian best in us. Keenan recommends taking a new look at traditional virtues. He weaves theological and cardinal virtues together with gracious little human virtues. Hope becomes the virtue for holding on, courage doing what you have to when you re afraid, humor, life s necessary salt. An excellent exploration of why virtues work so well when we work them into daily living.
