Description

The Heroic Heart: Greatness Ancient and Modern

What does it mean to be a hero? In his book, The Heroic Heart, Tod Lindberg traces the quality of heroic greatness from its most distant origin in human prehistory to the present day. The designation of “hero” once conjured mainly the prowess of conquerors and kings slaying their enemies on the battlefield. Heroes in the modern world come in many varieties, from teachers and mentors making a lasting impression on others by giving of themselves, to firefighters no less willing than their ancient counterparts to risk life and limb. What is the essence of the modern hero, and how did the transformation from fierce conqueror to self-sacrificial giver come about?
