The Self-Examination, based on the Seven Deadly Sins, is simple and to the point, yet thought provoking. ISBN-10: 096762570X, ISBN-13 978-0967625706

Questions for Self-Examination; from The Pilgrim’s Path: a Book of Prayers for Busy People.
This format for self-examination is based on the Ten Commandments, and it is thorough. A bit old-fashioned but still relevant some 90 years after it was written. The book is a gem of Anglican “information and instruction” compiled by Frederic E. Mortimer, D.D.; published in 1922. It is out of print, but gently used copies are perodically available on the internet. ASIN: B000P24C1G
