What is included with this book?


"Sloth is the Deadly Sin that attacks our desire to know God and the order that God created. Sloth makes us indifferent to the form that God wants the world and our relationships to take. Sloth makes us indifferent to order and unable to love." With these bold words, Dr. Blackwell exposes one of the least understood and most toxic sins in our daily lives, the sin of Sloth. In the first of this series of books on the Seven Deadly Sins, we are confronted with surprising and original insights into the nature of Sloth and how we can overcome it. This book is essential reading for Christians who are serious about genuine spiritual growth in the face of the obstacles of contemporary life. Book jacket.
