This book is an indispensable guide for an up-to date system of values. What once used to be deadly sins threatening human salvation have now become socially acceptable; envy and greed are the driving forces behind a ruthless economic world; there are outbreaks of anger on the streets and in the football stadiums. The name of the game is manifold: stubbornness, impatience , narcissism and disloyalty.
Notker Wolf has taken a look at an interesting development . He finds examples in he Bible, in the ancient myths, in current affairs. His conclusion: the deadly sins are as relevant today as ever before and it would be advisable not to leave the field open to them in our (western) economic and social systems, but rather t counter them with a foundation of values that are up to date . Readers will recognize themselves and our day and age in the mirror of this book.
