Description

The latest installment of the Bad Catholic's Guides examines the greatest threats to the virtuous life-the seven deadly sins. Theological and historical insights, tongue-in-cheek vignettes of history's greatest saints and sinners, and cringe-inducing quizzes entice readers to tally their scores on the virtue and vice index and calibrate to what degree they have imperiled their immortal souls. Andy Warhol, Ayn Rand, and Mother Angelica are invoked as exemplars of the best and worst of human behavior, while a heady blend of serious theology and pointed satire-punctuated by trivia, charts, and vignettes-brings theology into sharp, hilarious relief, and demonstrates that religious education need not be boring.
