Description

The inspiration behind the Hollywood blockbuster, "Se7en" (1995), the seven deadly sins are pride, greed, envy, anger, lust, gluttony and sloth. In this fascinating new book, experienced author and theologian Graham Tomlin explains the historical background to the sins before looking at each one in detail. He shows how, although the seven deadly sins were originally a medieval convention, contemporary culture still finds each sin attractive; he also suggests how we might overcome their destructiveness in practical and focussed ways. Written in a thoughtful and measured style, this will be an engaging read for all interested in philosophy, theology and the development of culture and religious thought.show more
