Intellectual Integrity in the Christian Scholar’s Life

Douglas V. Henry

Douglas V. Henry believes virtue ethics’ renaissance has enjoyed patronage by Christian scholars, but until recently, attention to the moral virtues has predominated. Here, he attends to an epistemic virtue—intellectual integrity—exploring what it is, why we need it, and how to cultivate it in our lives and work. In doing so, he argues that a conception of Christian scholarship focusing exclusively on content fails to recognize the wider range of resources needed for its thriving. By considering agential qualities like intellectual integrity that undergird Christian scholarship, we better promote the attitudinal and practical prerequisites for a flourishing Christian life of the mind. Mr. Henry is acting director of the Baylor Institute for Faith and Learning.
