David, I'm going to have to think about this and read more of what you've said about heroes. It turns out I'm preaching about heroes this week (sort of!). The text (RCL) is 1 Kings 19, and I've been reading Sam Wells' Improvisation (know of it?), and I liked his idea of contrasting heroes with saints; the idea is that we are called to be saints, not heroes. But I wonder if that distinction operates on a too-limited definition of "hero."


Sam, Read my latest post (the June 19 one), and if you want anything else or something more specific, let me know. Wells' distinction sounds a little like my last chapter. I'll see.

Campbell doesn't say that the outcome is inevitable and the success is assured. He acknowledges failures.
