The New Testament and Intellectual Humility

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Examines how the New Testament scriptures might form and foster intellectual humility within Christian communities
Argues that the intellectual virtue is cast as a particular expression of the broader Christian virtue of humility, something which itself proceeds from the believer's union with Christ, through which personal identity is reconstituted by the operation of the Holy Spirit
Draws upon recent studies in the science and philosophy of intellectual humility, and argues that while the New Testament account shares many elements with these, it also represents the virtue distinctly as a function of the believer's union with Christ, the one who is perfectly humble, and yet is also the object of worship
