Traditional teachings on the "seven deadly sins," as documented by St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, offer a strong foundation for knowing which virtues to cultivate and which vices to avoid. In Glittering Vices Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung notes that contemporary culture has too often trivialized and unfortunately dismissed these cardinal vices, treating them apart from any serious or moral spiritual implication. By providing a brief history of the vices and offering an informative chapter on each of the seven, DeYoung provides readers with a practical understanding of how these "deadly sins" shape our culture and why it is that pride, gluttony, greed, sloth, and others are incredibly destructive. This eye-opening book, will allow readers to correctly identify and eliminate deeply rooted patterns of sin at work in their lives.
