Reviews - What do customers think about Virtues & Practices in the Christian Tradition: Christian Ethics After Macintyre?

MacIntyre is a Marxist  Oct 27, 2005
MacIntyre teaches at Notre Dame and is a self-acclaimed Marxist. He was a member of the communist party in his early years. The parts of the book attributed to him reflect this. He is bias and condescending of conservative Christians. Plus the foundation for his version of "Virtues" is not Biblical but historical. I say a historical foundation is a shifty one since all human history is written by bias people. If virtues are based on the Bible they transcend human history and yearn to hear only the heart of God.
 
More than worthwhile  May 28, 2004
It's been over a year, so my memory of much of this book is fuzzy. That said, John Howard Yoder's contribution, Practicing the Rule of Christ, is worth more than its weight in gold. The article was originally written as a study guide on forgiveness, complete with study questions. Some additional material was added a bit later in a more standard essay form. This article was, without any doubt, the most provocative thing I've read in quite some time. The ideas from it still swirl around in my head on a regular basis.

Plenty of other good stuff on Christian conception of virtues as well.
