Overview

In this small book, Professor James Stalker examines each of the traditional seven deadly sins: Pride, Avarice, Luxury, Envy, Appetite, Anger and Sloth. He introduces each sin and discusses its causes and varieties, gives concrete examples of its manifestations, and concludes with suggested remedies for dealing with it. Revealing a pastor's sensitivity, genuine empathy, and biblical wisdom, Stalker ministers to the heart.

The concept of the Seven Deadly Sins has been around for centuries and shows up in literature, art, and the popular culture even today. These sins are considered to be the roots from which other sin springs. The sheer longevity and universality of the notion of fundamental or cardinal sins suggests that it describes a real phenomenon we experience as fallen human beings. Indeed, in the parable of the sower, Christ drew attention to particular temptations: "?the cares of the world and ?the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things." These seem to describe obstacles that are particularly harmful to faith.

Much like C. S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters, Stalker's The Seven Deadly Sins makes an excellent devotional that is sure to produce conviction and motivation to weed out sin in your life.
