Griffen, R. (2006). Proven Innocent, Adeline and Labor Press, NJ: Lawrenceville

 

If you are interested in The Seven Deadly Sins, then this little book may be of value to you. In it, Roman Griffen has written a story in which he takes the part of an advocate, arguing for the case that each of the seven deadly sins are actually not that bad.

This is a tricky topic and is likely to receive short shrift from some corners, whatever the case that is presented. Others may be more open to listening to some interesting argument.

The structure of the book is quite easy with an introductory chapter one chapter dedicated to each of the seven deadly sins. Within each chapter, the sin is personified and starts by entreating Griffen to represent its cause in court. A narrative then follows, taking the case of a court argument for the sin.

What Griffen shows is that whether or something is a sin or not is more than just a simple name, that intent is fundamental and mitigating circumstances may be important.

Overall, its a stimulating read!
