Shortlisted for the 2011 Michael Ramsey Prize. Today's society is in a state of confusion about the basis of morality. The traditional Christian approach is widely rejected whilst secular philosophies offer little real help. Richard Harries sets out an understanding of the relationship between Christianity and the decisions we make, which re-enchants morality with a profound appeal. He then considers this in relation to the four great drivers of human conduct - sex, money, power and fame - drawing on the biblical theme of Divine Wisdom and the radical teaching of Jesus. This is a book for all who are concerned that our society is living off its moral capital with nothing to replace it. At the same time, it offers help in the many decisions of life we all have to make.
