Shares seven virtues from the Scripture that many readers overlook, aiming to help believers break their old habits, keep old wounds from reopening, and stop old fears from resurfacing in order to to move into the life God intended for them.
Even for the religious, life is full of questions: What is faith? Can my life be more satisfying? How can I deepen my walk with Christ? What does it mean to be happy? These bubble and boil underneath the surface of our everyday life. And though we ignore them, we know they point us to realms of wisdom or even mystery-to something more.
Author Mark Buchanan asked these same questions. "I want more, God," he prayed-and the answer was more than he was looking for. It was right there, hidden in plain sight among the syllables and syntax of a few words of advice from the apostle Peter. With time and experience, Buchanan learned to tease it out, this secret of more, and he wrote a book about it: Hidden in Plain Sight. The answer, he discovered, is an investigation of the cross. The answer is an excavation of the virtues. The answer urges us passionately to "make every effort." And, Buchanan tells us, the answer is worth it.
In Hidden in Plain Sight, pastor and author Mark Buchanan introduces you to an age-old antidote to modern ills---the pursuit of virtue. Virtue at first may seem, as it did to Buchanan, an obsolete, restrictive, and fusty idea. "I still have moments where I think the good life is seeking my own pleasure at my own convenience, so the very thought of practicing virtue chafed me," he writes. He never imagined that it was actually the path to living life to the full, but that's what he's discovering: "a world vast, and beautiful and holy---that all along has been hidden in plain sight."
Hidden in Plain Sight invites you to consider what it truly means to live the "good life." Buchanan offers a course in living with holy vigor, based on the seven virtues recommended by the apostle Peter: goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.
