Item description for VIRTUES AND VICES by Durkin...
Overview Two consummate storytellers -- one a liberal Catholic priest, the other a conservative Jewish rabbi -- draw on their religious heritages to reveal fresh ways of understanding good and evil behavior. Inspired by scripture and oral tradition, each author presents a story on each of the seven deadly sins, and then offers a story on one of the seven primary virtues. Each vivid story offers profound insight into the ongoing battle of good and evil. Theologian Mary Greeley Durkin has written the compelling introduction and conclusion.
Each author presents a story on each of the seven virtues--faith, hope, charity, justice, temperance, fortitude, and prudence--and then offers a story on each of the seven deadly sins--pride, covetousness, lust, anger, sloth, and gluttony. This highly accessible book is inspired by scripture and oral tradition.
