What am I here for? How should I behave? Most Christians, faced with those questions, think in terms either of 'rules' or of 'living authentically'. Both lead to problems.

In this book, full of fresh biblical exploration, Bishop Tom Wright proposes instead that we inhabit the ancient tradition of virtue once again - but from a thoroughly Christian, not just a philosophical, perspective. The virtues are the strengths we need to get to our goal. Following on from his popular best-selling books Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope, he sees the goal in terms of the whole new creation, with humans renewed to look after it.

"With characteristic verve and luminous clarity Tom Wright now brings his learning and insight to bear on the complex field of ethics. He slices through both old and new conundrums by using - and renewing - the ancient key of virtue and the transformed character. Here is deep Christian wisdom for a bewildered age."
- John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford
