Thisrnwisdom finds expression in folk tales and fables, in ancient fiebrew Scriptures and Greek philosophy,rnand in medieval casuistry. It is the method to solving ethical problems great and small, and it is thernmethod that undergirds authentic conservatism.rnThe Morality of Everyday Life Order Form (please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery)rnHardcover Price $49.95rn($44.95 + $5.00 shipping and handling each)rnX QuantityrnTotalrnNamernAddressrnCity/State/ZiprnPlease mail form (with payment) to:rnChronicles/ProductsrnP.O.
