Description:     

Introduces the contemporary reader to Christian ethics by examining the New Testament through the three key concepts of Aristotle’s ethics: happiness, virtue, and love. In turn, the three affirmations orient this reflection through the Gospel.

First, when the triune God appears on the horizon, it becomes easier to understand that existence has a purpose: namely, participating with the entire human family in this project of happiness called the Kingdom of God.

Second, happiness is not something outside of us; it consists in the practice of the virtues that bring about a personal transformation.

Third, the project of the Kingdom leads us to live in love with others. De Mingo shows the reader a real model of this in the community we call the church.
