Overview

Young people today are faced with a deluge of what many adults would consider to be negative role models whether in professional sports, the movie industry or music. Who will young people follow and try to emulate? Who will mold their character?

In Seven Virtues, John Sullivan argues that the "world" has it all wrong! A "real" man or woman is not one who aggressively guards his own “rights” and privileges, who seeks his own good even at the expense of others, who is out to maximize his wealth, worldly enjoyment and pleasure, and is always ready to challenge anyone who gets in his or her way. Rather these character traits lead only to disappointment, discouragement, depression and poverty.

Sullivan shows us a better way through the character traits displayed by Jesus. Emphasizing the traits of kindness, generosity, humility, faithfulness, loyalty, courage and integrity through stories which challenge a small mouse (who lives in a typically human culture) to high adventure, the author crafts stories that will delight and instruct young people while building lasting positive character traits.

These stories will be enjoyed by youngsters and teens while teaching them how to live their lives to achieve happiness in this life and in the life to come.
