Item Description...
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.

Publishers Description

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.

Community Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This man is a Pastor?  Mar 21, 2007
I didn't have to read beyond the inside jacket leaf of the book to know right away that the author doesn't know the Bible all that well. For he states that it was a Roman Soldier's ear that Peter cut off with a sword.

Anyone who has studied the Bible with earnest and I would hope anyone who holds the position of Pastor should know that it was a servant of the high priest that lost an ear to Peter, not a Roman Soldier. Based on this, I simply can't trust anything else this man would have to say in his book.

John 18:10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

Matthew 26:51 And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
Keeping looking for the good life  Mar 12, 2007
It is always so helpful when an author points his finger at a passage of Scripture that has probably gone unnoticed by most of us, but is a treasure that has been waiting all along. Buchanan accomplishes that in his explication of a detailed statement on living in the good in 2 Peter. Inside is a list of virtues based on authentic faith--so they are not merely good intentions, but real virtues. The book is a pleasure to read, moving between vivid storytelling and principle.
