Overview

Simplifying the practice of virtue is what James Keenan does so well in Virtues for Ordinary Christians. This moral theologian sees beyond the do’s and don’ts of moral codes and reclaims the practice of virtue for the sheer joy of it. Virtue, he shows, brings out the Christian best in us. Keenan recommends taking a new look at traditional virtues. He weaves theological and cardinal virtues together with gracious little “human” virtues. Hope becomes the virtue for holding on, courage doing what you have to when you’re afraid, humor, life’s necessary salt. An excellent exploration of why virtues work so well when we work them into daily living.
