Becoming Good: Building Moral Character (2000) is a study of character--the kind of people we are, our habits, dispositions, inclinations, virtues, and vices. Without good character we do not have the strength or wisdom to fight off temptation and do the right thing, no matter how good our principles may be. For this study Jesus' Beatitudes are the primary guide, with Paul's faith, hope, and love a close second. Becoming Good digs deep into the biblical text and vocabulary, listens to the great biblical and ethical teaching of the past two millennia, and provides abundant contemporary illustrations and applications. Becoming Good works as a stand-alone study (the ethics of ""being,"" virtue ethics), but it is also the companion to Doing Right (the ethics of ""doing,"" decision and action).
