Glittering Vices: A New Look At The Seven Deadly Sins And Their Remedies, Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung

5 stars
As a philosopher from Calvin College, DeYoung brings her expertise to this topic as she provides a historically accurate understanding of the vices while doing the helpful translation work concerning the way the vices need to be understood and addressed in our modern time. Her writing is clear and engaging and this book is a must read for anyone who counsels, mentors, disciples, or is looking for wisdom. Her analysis is filled with insight and practical conclusions. Although she turns the reader's attention to the vices one can't help but nurture a longing for and response toward their corresponding virtues. This is a book I will return to and apply.
