Book Overview
Oxford and the New York Public Library bring together seven prominent writers and thinkers to pen book-length meditations that illuminate both sin and sinner. Of the Seven Deadly Sins, pride is the only one with a virtuous side. When taken too far, as Michael Eric Dyson shows in Pride, these virtues become deadly sins. Dyson probes the philosophical and theological roots of pride in examining its transformation in Western culture.
