Chuck Wooldridge City of Virtues


Throughout Nanjing’s history, writers have claimed that its spectacular landscape of mountains and rivers imbued the city with “royal qi ,” making it a place of great political significance. City of Virtues examines the ways a series of visionaries, drawing on past glories of the city, projected their ideologies onto Nanjing as they constructed buildings, performed rituals, and reworked the literary heritage of the city. More than an urban history of Nanjing from the late 18th century until 1911 – encompassing the Opium War, the Taiping occupation of the city, the rebuilding of the city by Zeng Guofan, and attempts to establish it as the capital of the Republic of China – this study shows how utopian visions of the cosmos shaped Nanjing’s path through the turbulent 19th century.

Mark O’Keefe OSB Virtues Abounding


Living a morally good life today is a challenge. But we become fully and authentically human precisely by the decisions we make every day–some of them relatively simple, others complex and difficult. Once a choice is made, we still must claim the moral resolve and strength of character to implement it. Virtues are precisely the sustained habits that help us maneuver life's many choices and to become the good people that we want to be. St. Thomas Aquinas offers the classic Christian presentation of the four principal virtues of prudence, justice, courage, and temperance. But these are precisely cardinal or «hinge» virtues that provide the foundational framework for Aquinas's much broader presentation of a multitude of other virtues. Neglect of this larger array of moral attitudes for good living would miss the breadth of Aquinas's insights into a human life truly well-lived. Virtues Abounding explores, in contemporary language, the practical insights that Aquinas offers for the moral life today. Whether in university, seminary, or adult faith formation settings–whether for a deeper intellectual understanding of virtues or for personal reflection and growth–Virtues Abounding will provide new insight into a classic but too often overlooked storehouse of moral riches.

William J. Bennett Children's Book of Virtues

William J. Bennett Book of Virtues

Leonardo Boff Virtues


Virtues are values underlying human practices. We are at the dawn of a new era, an era of global ethics requiring some core virtues. These core virtues are hospitality, co-living, respect, tolerance, and communality. Book 1 treats the virtue of hospitality that is a right and a duty of all, and which is still to be discovered and practiced unconditionally. Book 2 deals with the virtues of co-living, respect, and tolerance, which are important virtues if the peoples of the earth are to live together in peace in our common home, the planet Earth. Finally, Book 3 deals with the virtue of communality; this is a very important virtue because a large part of humanity experiences hunger and thirst, which is something scandalous in this day and age, and which demonstrates a lack of humanity, because we possess the technical means and political framework to resolve this situation. If these core virtues become a reality, they will transform human practices into something beneficial both to human beings and to the planet Earth, our common home.

Holly Hoffman Thomas And the Word Became Flesh


The key to becoming a saint is to actively practice the virtues. How can you practice the virtues if you do not understand the concept of «virtues»? This book is comprised of twelve virtues that will aid you in your quest to become a saint. The three theological virtues (faith, hope, charity) are in Part 1 of this book. Next, you will dive into the four cardinal virtues (prudence, justice, fortitude, temperance). Finally, you will learn about five virtues close to my heart (patience, compassion, perseverance, authenticity, purposefulness). It is my hope that you will find at least one of these virtues tugging at your heart to develop further in your life. Perhaps learning of these virtues will lead you to research other virtues and their meaning to you.
In a concise, easy to follow format, each chapter consists of the following elements pertaining to each virtue: ·Definition ·Scripture passages ·Catechism of the Catholic Church references ·A saint that exhibits the virtue ·Real lives, real stories connecting each virtue to another person ·Reflection tying the saint to the other person as he/she strives for that virtue ·Questions to guide you to reflect on each virtue ·Digging deeper where you can ponder Biblical figures and how they practice each virtue ·Closing prayer As you journey through this book, I pray you grow closer to God. Let us stand together to live a virtuous life, countercultural to what the world offers today.

Elizabeth Agnew Cochran Receptive Human Virtues


This book offers a new reading of Jonathan Edwards’s virtue ethic that examines a range of qualities Edwards identifies as “virtues” and considers their importance for contemporary ethics. Each of Edwards’s human virtues is “receptive” in nature: humans acquire the virtues through receiving divine grace, and therefore depend utterly on Edwards’s God for virtue’s acquisition. By contending that humans remain authentic moral agents even as they are unable to attain virtue apart from his God’s assistance, Edwards challenges contemporary conceptions of moral responsibility, which tend to emphasize human autonomy as a central part of accountability.
