A Recent Publication: Virtue and the Abundant Life
The Wheatley Institution is pleased to announce the release of Virtue and the Abundant Life, a compilation of talks from the BYU Religious Education and Wheatley Institution Symposium held in October 2010. The symposium brought together fourteen civic leaders, gospel educators, and scholars to explore various aspects of virtue, giving us a fuller picture of its significance.
Virtue is at the very heart of who we are. Yet in our world of sliding values and diminishing morals, we often lose sight of what it really means.
Virtue and the Abundant Life examines what is necessary for virtue to flourish, how to cultivate a life of virtue, and how to pass on the love of virtue and virtuous living to future generations. Virtue is not an antiquated method of living but one that, when applied, makes life rich and abundant.
