“The clinical virtues of humility, compassion, hope, and Sabbath rest are narrative-dependent. In other words, their meaning and unity derive from their place in a shared story. We can consider them as character qualities, but only in the sense that they are appropriate to being a character in a particular story: the story of God’s ongoing restoration of shalom.”


Dr. Lee, in a sermon on 2 Corinthians and clinical virtues. Listen to his sermon on the FULLER sermons podcast.
