Overview

Based on the traditional sins which plague us, these sermons seek through contemporary illustrations to express not only how the seven deadly sins affect us, but also to describe a means by which to deal with them in the pursuit of virtuous living. Fussell clearly reveals that the deadly sins, while a constant source of trouble, can be dealt with in a positive and liberating manner by recalling the Good News and the challenge to express it in our lives.

Each sermon also includes a children's message.

Sermon titles include:

Deadly Sins: A Matter Of Sutton's Law -- Romans 7:14-25

Envy: Where Is The Grass Greener? -- Genesis 4, Matthew 20:1, Philippians 4:4-13

Anger: Eleven Ways To Blow Up, Seven Ways To Cool Off -- Matthew 5:21-22, Romans 12:14-21, Ephesians 4:29-32

Sloth: What Happens When Indifference Meets Enthusiasm? -- Matthew 25:l4-30, Revelation 3:15-16

These are provocative sermons about human sinfulness -- the sinfulness of every one of us. But their purpose is not simply to expose and condemn sin, and give good advice about how we can be more virtuous. They are sermons about the grace of God in Jesus Christ who loves and forgives sinners, makes possible new beginnings, and sets us on the way to new life.
