Author Credentials


 M. Gregg Fager 

Greetings!  And Welcome!  What is the story behind my 34 years of work on the languages of human character and human virtue (1984-2018)?  And how can you, your family and society greatly benefit from mastering the content of the three books that have come from my work? 

The answers to these questions are given by my late friend Dr. Richard G. Wilkins (1952-2012) in his "Foreword" to my trilogy, found in the book To Be Virtuous, Second Edition.  That book will help you and your children better discern and choose truth and virtue for yourselves.  When they can read, give them their own copy.

When they can reason, they will be ready for their own copy of The Language of Human Virtue.  This will prepare them for The Language of Human Character when the time comes.  The path of wisdom will eventually take them and you in reverse order back to the first book.

My many setbacks have helped me avoid taking myself too seriously.  I have, however, taken my work on human characteristics very seriously.  Human character is the course of study I wish I could have undertaken in college.  Why it was not / is not offered I do not know.

For each of us, developing the best possible character will be our crowning achievement in life.    Human virtue is the curriculum my wife and I came to realize our family needed and will need the most.  We hope your posterity and ours will use it to become the best people they can be.

That being said, you may be wondering about my expertise.  You may want to know what my qualifications are to undertake such a work.  So I have provided the following brief summary of my credentials.  Like many of you, my ongoing preparations continue to help me in my unfolding work.
