This Study Circle Guide is designed to accompany the book The Virtue Driven Life, by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR.

This book is Fr. Groeschel’s mature treatment of the intersection of sound psychology and traditional Christian teaching on virtue. Fr. Groeschel led a remarkable ministry in North America for many years, combining scholarly achievements (both in psychology and theology) with a tireless apostolate that included founding a new branch of Franciscan religious life, extensive teaching and writing, and a wildly popular television program on EWTN.

Fr. Groeschel is dependably orthodox and communicates his message in a winning, lively style.

The core idea of this book touches on acquiring and applying a robust idea of the concept of virtue, understood as the full-flowering of the human person. It provides solid doctrinal explanations of the cardinal virtues (prudence, fortitude, justice, temperance) and the theological virtues (faith, hope, charity), and it also points out some of their applications in the spiritual life and in daily living. The emphasis is on correcting certain misconceptions about virtue and personal growth/human maturity that have become embedded in popular culture, even among faithful Catholics.
