What if the good life has less to do with prestige and plenty and more to do with prudence, hope and faith? Would you still want a guide to get there? Maybe the idea of a life based on the virtues creates an uneasy feeling. Too hard, you might think, too boring. Robert Lockwood sets the record straight in A Guy s Guide to the Good Life. Lockwood weaves Scripture, Church teaching and everyday stories from Babe Ruth s funeral to the author s doomed efforts to make the varsity basketball team revealing the virtues for what they really are: a call to action and our tie to the living God. The virtuous life isn t just the good life; it s the best life, the life you were made for.
