The Seven Deadly Sins Today / Edition 1by Henry Fairlie
Pub. Date: 10/28/1988
Publisher: University of Notre Dame Press
Sin, like death, is an unassailable fact of life. It is also one of the last great taboos for public debate. In this compelling book, the Henry Fairlie shows that it is possible and necessary to talk about sin in ways that enrich our societies and our personal lives. Fairlie relates these ancient sins to the central issues of contemporary life: liberal vs. conservative politics, discrimination, pornography, abortion, the vistas of modern science, and especially the pop-psychologies that confirm the narcissism of our age.

This is one of the best books I've read on the seven deadly sins, particularly as they operate in us, both personally and as a society.
