The Seven Deadly Sins

Graham Tomlin

$10.99

Paperback
Also Available In
The word 'sin' evokes smirks rather than shudders. We find it hard to see why our ancestors got so agitated about it. And if we do think about sin, we tend to equate it with such things as harming the environment or intolerance rather than gluttony or pride. In The Seven Deadly Sins, Graham Tomlin seeks to restore the idea of sin to its proper place as something to be deeply feared. He explores the seven sins in turn, taking us on a spiritual journey towards a new and better way of life. He shows how contemporary culture reverses traditional wisdom and finds each of them attractive in different ways. However, these practices are not peccadilloes but destructive habits, which destroy lives, relationships, environments and societies. Finally, he shows in practical and focused ways how the Christian faith can offer resources to help remove these habits and replace them with more constructive ones. Writing for all those interested in personal spirituality and philosophy, the author offers a thoughtful and accessible guide to wise living.
