3289 The Freedom to Love (HC book)
Full title: The Freedom to Love: Recovery and the Seven Deadly Sins. By Fr. Emmerich Vogt, OP. Explores the need for virtue in the life of the Christian. It examines not only the seven deadly sins, but since virtue is the mean between extremes, it also studies the opposite extremes. For example, chastity is a virtue that corrects the sin of lust, but to be chaste doesn't mean a person lacks warm affection. Those who overcome lust but are as cold as ice are disturbed by the opposing extreme, prudishness. The book takes a look at the capital sins, their opposing virtues and opposite extremes, all in the context of recovery. 125 pp. Hardcover.
