Book Review: The Virtue Driven Life



Fr. Groeschel brings his wisdom to bear in an exposition of the seven main virtues of Christian life. Beginning with the four cardinal virtues (prudence, temperance, fortitude and justice), Groeschel explains their human characteristics, and how they can be elevated by grace to a supernatural level. For the three theological virtues (faith, hope and charity), he explains how they flow from God's grace. Examples from life pepper the text, making for clear examples and keeping the material interesting. A good introduction to the important virtues for anyone interested in the Catholic faith.

I was attracted to your blog through your review of The Virtue Driven Life and wanted to guage your interest in reviewing a copy of a new book about Mother Teresa called Secret Fire.

It's written by Fr. Joseph Langford, one of Mother Teresa's most trusted advisors. I am happy to send you a copy. If you're interested, please email me at bburch@lambert-edwards.com.
