The Seven Deadly Sins PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Seven Deadly Sins free pdf 'It's naughty but nice.' 'I know I shouldn't really, but it will be fun and won't do any harm.' The idea of 'sin' today evokes smirks rather than shudders. We find it hard to see why our ancestors got so agitated about it: haven't we got beyond such prudery? By examining each of The Seven Deadly Sins in turn, Graham Tomlin restores sin to its proper place as something to be deeply feared. He shows how contemporary culture reverses traditional wisdom and finds each sin seductive in different ways. Tomlin demonstrates that these practices are destructive habits that ruin lives, relationships and societies. Finally, he shows how the Christian faith offers resources to help defeat these habits and replace them with more constructive ones. Writing for all those interested in personal spirituality and philosophy, the author offers an accessible guide to wise living.
