Why we need heroes
Leading an interpretive life makes a leader, and there’s no course to teach skills and competences that are required. Of course a leader should be acquainted with modern and postmodern hermeneutical theory, but, even more so, he or she should develop leadership by interpretation and lead an interpretive life. By an interpretive life we mean the embodied reflection of everything the community stands for, such as its faith and hopes and life expectations. An interpretive life invites all who care to participate in narrative identification. Accordingly, an interpretive life points at viable hermeneutical pathways for others to take.
