This chapter examines virtues and mysteries in Christianity. It defines virtue as the impetus carried along, impelled, or thrust onward, by a value that is not simply an available and determined good but that is valuable to the degree that this thrust carries one beyond what has been or could be determined. It suggests that the revelation of Christian mystery is not the unveiling of some secret and argues that the essential mysteries are the trinity, the incarnation, and the resurrection.
