Synopsis

Each author presents a story on each of the seven virtues--faith, hope, charity, justice, temperance, fortitude, and prudence--and then offers a story on each of the seven deadly sins--pride, covetousness, lust, anger, sloth, and gluttony. This highly accessible book is inspired by scripture and oral tradition.
