How uaint and out of date I reply that a civilization with such a notion of virtues and vices will soon itself be uaint and out of date The book is reasonably short 195 pages but packed full of things to think about For example the difference in Greek and Hebrew th

    Epub apolloonline.co Õ For Heaven's Sake ePUB ã For Heaven's PDF/EPUB ² heaven's kindle, sake pdf, For Heaven's free, For Heaven's Sake PDFThis is one that will need a second reading to really be fully appreciated The richness of each page reminds me much of C S Lewis and indeed Lewis is uoted on every third page Kreeft is prescribing the needed medicine for a culture broken and ill and in doing so he encourages us look past mere lists of rules and recover the ancient Christian understanding of Virtue In turn he deals with what virtue is the three theological virtues faith hope and charity and four cardinal virtues justice wisdom courage and moderation and shows how the beatitudes are the antidote to the seven deadly sins Auinas features almost as much as LewisIn all Kreeft is witty and winsome and he admirably succeeds in showing the beauty of virtue and the blandness o

    Epub apolloonline.co Õ For Heaven's Sake ePUB ã For Heaven's PDF/EPUB ² heaven's kindle, sake pdf, For Heaven's free, For Heaven's Sake PDFPeter Kreeft as expected gives us in this book a wonderful explanation of Virtue and Beatitude in relation to Vice and Misery within Our Lives toward Our Neighbor and toward God The first part looks to explain concepts and give some history regarding this matter from all the world's wisdom traditions up to our time The second part looks to explain The Cardinal Virtues and their opposing vices The Theological Virtues and debunk their opposition and finally The 8 Beatitudes and their opposing vices This book is small and easy to read if you read but a chapter a day and meditated on it significance it could change your life and inspire the reader to greater heights as it enlightens the mind

    Epub apolloonline.co Õ For Heaven's Sake ePUB ã For Heaven's PDF/EPUB ² heaven's kindle, sake pdf, For Heaven's free, For Heaven's Sake PDFNot my favorite Kreeft book I think he is most at home in philosophy That said I still really enjoyed this one It's good timing that the Catholic Church just came out with 7 Modern Deadly Sins though I think all sins are deadlysome are just obvious to us as such Virtue is a wonderful and romantic concept which gets laughed at and or seen as impossible too often today It's a serious defense of the word and how it needs to be attempted especially in the modern day in which vices can cause devastation than ever before Of course I love that he defends its practice and does so through Scripture holding up Love Grace Life and God Not bad at all

    Epub apolloonline.co Õ For Heaven's Sake ePUB ã For Heaven's PDF/EPUB ² heaven's kindle, sake pdf, For Heaven's free, For Heaven's Sake PDFPeter Kreeft does show that the reformist where misguided in rejecting the cardinal virtues of Plato and Aristotle just as we would be misguided by rejecting Newtonian Physics after learning Einstein's theories of relativity You need to understand Newton in order to understand Einstein and you need to have a basic knowledge of logic and virtues in order to understand the Bible However he does not show exactly how the Cardinal virtues are derived from logic alone Why only 4? Why isn't love a important virtue than wisdom fortitude justice or temperance?
