STEUBENVILLE, Ohio, May 20, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Emmaus Road Publishing announced today the release of Susan Muto's "Virtues: Your Christian Legacy," available at emmausroad.org and bookstores.

In a world crushed by vice, "Virtues: Your Christian Legacy" restores the call to discipleship and the rewards of virtuous living. Growth takes time, but virtuous living bears fruit that lasts for life. Muto's book stands as an invitation and a challenge to change your behavior and allow your Christian legacy to enrich a bruised and wounded world.

Publisher Mike Sullivan says, "Susan Muto's insight into the virtues comes through as spectacular as ever. But as impressive as that is, 'Virtues: Your Christian Legacy' also offers a remarkably practical plan to grow in virtue and resist vice. It doesn't get stuck in its contemplative appeal, but moves into actionable steps for Christians to become the antidote to the problem of vice in today's world -- by leaving behind their own legacy of virtues."

Mike Aquilina, author and editor of more than forty Catholic books, says that "if we could see history from God's perspective, I think Susan Muto's life and work would appear as a tsunami of grace. With this book she helps us, very practically, to live up to Pope Francis's call to a life of discipleship and witness -- a life that's intentional, meaningful, and virtuous."

Regis Flaherty, director of the Gilmary Catholic Retreat Center and author, calls Muto's book "page-turning." "Her writing style is so inviting and her text so well crafted that it is a pleasure to read . . . thought provoking, insightful, and clear."

Susan Muto, PhD, is dean of the Epiphany Academy of Formative Spirituality. She received the 2014 Aggiornamento award presented by the Catholic Library Association in recognition of her outstanding contribution made to the ministry of renewal. She is a single laywoman doing full-time, Church-related ministry in the Epiphany Association. Dr. Muto is a renowned speaker, writer, and teacher in the field of literature and spirituality. She has led conferences, seminars, workshops, and institutes throughout the world, and is the author of numerous books.

"Virtues: Your Christian Legacy" is available at emmausroad.org, Amazon, or your local Catholic bookstore.
