Virtue with No After? On Failure and Formation

In this essay Brandy Daniels explores how a queer embrace of failure is generative for Christian virtue ethical frameworks; and argues that failure, through its critical skepticism of the notion of stable and normative paths towards clear ideals, provides a counter-framework for a theological anthropology that acknowledges and affirms creaturely existence and engenders a liberative ethics grounded in risk-taking and inclusion.
