In Praise of Virtue: An Exploration of the Biblical Virtues in a Christian Context
Benjamin W Farley
From The Publisher:
In this resourceful and illuminating exploration of the biblical virtues, Benjamin W Farley examines both the Old and the New Testament and applies their teachings on moral character to the Christian life today. In the process, Farley critically reviews the current philosophical and theological interest in virtue, engages the Aristotelian, Thomist, and modern views of virtue, incorporates and responds to feminist concerns, and discusses the importance of the biblical virtues for our pluralistic age.
