All about the vice you didn't know you had - and what to do about it...

What do we have in common?

Chances are, says Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung, that we all suffer from vainglory - a keen desire for attention and approval.

Although contemporary culture has largely forgotten about vainglory, it was on the original list of seven capital vices and is perhaps more dangerous than ever today.

In Vainglory: The Forgotten Vice DeYoung tells the story of this vice, moving from its ancient origins to its modern expressions.

She defines vainglory, gives examples from popular culture, explores motivational sources, and discusses other vices associated with it such as hypocrisy and boasting.

After exposing the many ways in which vainglory can rear its ugly head, she explores personal spiritual practices that can help us resist it and community practices that can help us handle glory well. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
