Regarding a theory of virtue,
Aristotle’s tradition [of working to achieve virtue] led ultimately to pride. … For Paul — and this was one of the most painful things he had to work out, as we see in 2 Corinthians — the Christian life of virtue was shaped by the cross of Jesus Christ, resulting in a quite new virtue never before imagined: humility. … The Christianly virtuous person is not thinking about his or her moral performance. He or she is thinking of Jesus Christ, and of how best to love the person next door.
Wright commends to us what he calls “the virtuous circle,” consisting of five elements: scripture, stories, examples, community, and practices. These are designed to help us develop transformed hearts and minds. The presence of the Trinity is, of course, assumed, and its starting point is grace, and its end is glory — the presence of God, with justice and beauty are among its chief objects.
