"It's naughty but nice." "I know I shouldn't really, but it will be fun and won't do any harm." The idea of 'sin' today evokes smirks rather than shudders. We find it hard to see why our ancestors got so agitated about it: haven't we got beyond such prudery? By examining each of The Seven Deadly Sins in turn, Graham Tomlin restores sin to its proper place as something to be deeply feared. He shows how contemporary culture reverses traditional wisdom and finds each sin seductive in different ways. Tomlin demonstrates that these practices are destructive habits that ruin lives, relationships and societies. Finally, he shows how the Christian faith offers resources to help defeat these habits and replace them with more constructive ones. Writing for all those interested in personal spirituality and philosophy, the author offers an accessible guide to wise living.

'Reminiscent of J.B. Phillips and C.S. Lewis in its clear presentation, measured conversational tone and often startling analysis.' Publisher's Weekly, New York 'Combining the scholarship of an eminent theologian with the street wisdom of a contemporary people watcher, this powerful book offers effective antidotes to the poisonous consequences of sin.' Jonathan Aitken Tomlin's strong, simple style should appeal to many Christian readers. -- Graham Christian Library Journal They call it a "potential classic" that is "reminiscent of such mid-20th-century authors as J.B. Phillips and C.S. Lewis in its clear presentation, measured conversational tone and often startling analysis." Publishers Weekly "It is biblical, quotable, thought-provoking and readable. A welcoming gift for preachers" Christianity "A thoughtful guide to a wiser way of living." Church Review Featured sixth on the Church Times' Top Ten Religious Books Church Times
