More than naughty, and not nice at all... Apr 12, 2009
Today's society has diluted the 7 Deadly sins down to a 'naughty but nice' status. As a Christian, I knew about the 7 deadly sins, but I never really considered them to be deadly. I'm not into 'heavy' reading, and this was easy to read. I started with just fingering it, then started to read it little by little, and found I kept coming back to it. It explains the seven deadly sins in a way that I had never known or considered. It defines the sins and their roots, and then gives simple illustrative examples. It gives a lot of references to historic writers, but not in such a way that I would be turned off. Please note that I had checked this book out of the library, and think it is well worth buying for my family and friends. BTW - the author is British, so some of the wording is unusual to the American reader.
