In this highly successful series seven prominent scholars offer a "mediation on temptation" for each of the seven deadly sins. In Greed, Phyllis Tickle argues that it is through an engagement with greed and our current, popular absorption with its consequences, that morality most obviously and broadly is being re-configured and re-introduced into formal religion. In other words, while greed may be the deadliest of the seven, it ironically enough may also be the first to revitalize us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
She brings a remarkable lightness of touch to an audacious review of 2,000 years of western history * Julian Baggini, The Guardian (Review) *
'Simon Blackburn on lust and Joseph Epstein on envy have produced little classics: written, researched and argued exemplarily, they take their topics seriously but discuss them with elegance and humour as well as insight. Francine Prose on gluttony joins them at the top of the list with a kind and thoughtful meditation.' * A.C. Graylin, Financial Times Magazine *
