Publisher's Summary

Our world is charged with both the grandeur of God and the void of his absence. The seven deadly sins are the force causing that hole. They are at work in each of us. They decimate our relationships, our souls, and our world. These deadly sins often seem pleasing and good for gaining what we desire, but they are thoroughly poisonous.

Conversely, the Beatitudes are Jesus' pictures of a restored creation. The Beatitudes introduced what Jesus said to his earliest followers about a life strong and fruitful. In fact, the Beatitudes give us a glimpse of a world empty of evil and filled to the edges with God's life. Looking at the Beatitudes and the seven deadly sins in turn, we see two paths, two sets of invitations. Both call to deep places within us to come and taste. Both invite us to take up residence. Both present themselves as life as it actually is. But only one will draw us further into reality. And only one will make us happy.

What the Critics Say

"Of the many, many books about the Gospels, or about Jesus, or about Christian morality, only one in a thousand gives us a real breakthrough, a new 'big picture'. Most are just nice little candles on the cake. Seven is a bonfire. It's not just good; it's striking. It doesn't just say all the things you've heard a thousand times before. And yet it's totally in sync with both the saints and the scholars." (Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy at Boston College, and author of over 45 books, including Fundamentals of the Faith).

    "Good perspective - learned a few things"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, I was looking for the relationship between sin and how we are suppose to live. Even though the seven deadly sins are not Biblical this book does give an interesting relationship.


    Do you think Seven needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, all was covered well.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommmend.

    "Most original Audiobook I've listen to recently"
    Would you listen to Seven again? Why?

    Fluid, always interesting, and the original music by Tim Coons that flows in and out of the recording is brilliant.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seven?

    The last chapter is a live recording of the author, an amazing conclusion to the book. I haven't heard anyone else do this before.

    Story
    "Thought provoking"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    In so many ways this book makes you realize how flawed how absolutely lost we are, including those of us like me who feel we are a Christian. This book shows how we all fail in any test of honoring God and the sacrifice made by Christ. The book makes you dig deep and ask difficult questions about your own relationship with God and His Creation.
