Faith, Hope and Love (SP49)
How should we live our lives and how can we grow in goodness? The three theological virtues (Faith, Hope and Charity) and their meaning is examined here, in the context of the Christian revolution in virtue ethics.
What is a good human being and who is good? Has anyone ever been perfect and, if so, who? How does one grow in goodness and become perfect? What is man really? What would we be like, male and female, if human nature could ever be brought to perfection? This book is an attempt to answer these questions by examining the meaning of virtue following the coming of Christ, or what one might call the ‘Christian Revolution’ of virtue ethics, particularly in regard to the theological virtues: Faith, Hope and Charity.
