cover of Glittering VicesIn Glittering Vices, Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung carefully parses the meanings and attractions of the seven deadly sins. Historically and biblically informed, her explorations lead readers to meditate on personal participation in these sins. She doesn’t forget to provide a way out of these meditations. If the first part of each chapter describing one of the sins—envy, vainglory, sloth, avarice, anger, gluttony and lust—is a mirror, then the end of each chapter is a window on the other side of which is Christ, armed with the power to transform even the deadliest of vices into virtues.
