Rhythms of Habit—my next book—is an introduction to the virtues as moral muscles, to habits as exercises aimed at strengthening specific virtues, and to the church calendar as an annual prescription of habits aimed at forming the virtues needed to become a whole human in Christ.

The basic shape of the book is below, along with links to samples and selections. Many of these were previously shared via Substack. I have moved all of those posts here, and have made them available for free. These posts mostly represent kernels of thought, not so much the finished chapters.
