Two new books look seriously at the Christian vices and virtues. Ellingsen's only jestingly invokes sin; this work, by the author of When Did Jesus Become Republican? and Reclaiming Our Roots, is a thoughtful and well-articulated attempt to retrieve the Evangelical movement of Christianity from the ethos of Rick Warren and The Purpose-Driven Life, as well as the "Gospel of Prosperity," freeing oneself by surrendering one's will to God. It should be helpful to many readers. DeYoung (philosophy, Calvin Coll.), who penned the "Seven Deadly Sins" article in the Encyclopedia of Christianity, offers a serious, scripturally based revisitation of the perils conservative Christians face from the traditional deadly sins. Ellingsen is recommended for most collections; DeYoung will be suitable for many as well.
