The Golden Virtues of Jesus Christ is a book on learning to live a virtuous life, on why one would want to, and on the benefits society reaps when we do so. He takes a look at some basic attributes of life, such as the desire to retaliate, the conditions of our lives, whether we have suffered misuse or abuse, our personal sensitivity levels, our pride, and more. He then explains how these attributes or states of being affect our desire to achieve and maintain virtuous behavior. He lists and explains some techniques for becoming virtuous, i.e., self-monitoring, self-observation, good feelings, willpower, benevolence, practice among others. Allen explains the purpose of living the virtuous life. He tells us that virtues are how we “show courtesy” to each other as human beings. He points out that when there is an “absence of virtues, the world is in a state of turmoil and degeneration.” Next, Allen lists 120 Virtues which he first defines and then goes on to explain the need for adhering to the virtue in our lives. He tackles things like tactfulness, assertiveness, strong mindedness, wit, manners, expressiveness, kindness, sincerity, and other virtues, or qualities of behavior that serve to make us a better person. He states that virtues are “the positive effectual energies that we express in our speech, attitudes and deeds, that bring about the desirable events and experiences of life.” The book is written in a simple, easy-to-digest style, and in small, bite-sized chapters that are just right for evening contemplation or morning meditations.
