Abstract:

This article presents an overview of a course entitled ‘The Ethics of Ambition’ which over the period of the last fifteen years the author has taught to undergraduates and seminarians, as well as in church-sponsored adult education programs. It summarizes and describes a number of pedagogical strategies that have evolved over time in response to the exigencies of these varying educational environments. More topically, the article offers a brief criticism of certain ‘neo-conservative’ assumptions regarding the pedagogical efficacy of the Christian narrative as these impinge upon the actual teaching situation.
