Man Virtues: What the Hell Am I Doing with My Life? / Robert P Lockwood

Products Qty: 2

Robert P. Lockwood (you can call him Bob) has asked the same question you’ve asked dozens of times:

“What the hell am I doing with my life?”

Like you, he has wondered why he does what he does, and why it can be so hard to be the person he wants to be. In the end, it’s about wanting happiness. Not three-beer happiness, I-got-a-raise happiness, or the-Steelers-made-the-playoffs happiness, but that quiet contentment that comes from living a good life.

What does it take to find true happiness? Virtues. Not goodie-goodie niceness, but real, manly virtues. As in:

  • The four cardinal virtues: the way you look at and act in the world
  • The three theological virtues: your personal connection to the living God

These virtues are how we are meant to live. They’re what we admire in other guys and hope to find in ourselves, but most of us are convinced that cultivating these virtues is just too hard. Well, Bob is here to show you that with grace, the sacraments, and some holy habits, a life of virtue is not only possible, it’s a lot easier than mediocrity.

P.S. If a woman in your life handed you this book, read it. You won’t have to tell her how much you liked it. She’ll know, when it starts to show.

“Bob Lockwood is a guy’s guy, and a Catholic guy’s Catholic guy. Here he’s done the step-by-step for all of us who won’t stop and ask for directions, even though we really, really need them.”—Mike Aquilina
