In 1985, Lutheran Bishop Krister Stendahl coined the term “holy envy” as a way of expressing how we can be inspired and motivated by the devotion of other religions, even if we do not necessarily adopt their beliefs or practices. Following terrible incidents of religious violence, such as the massacres at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, how can cultivating a proper sense of holy envy lead to greater religious understanding? How can we better appreciate each other while being strengthened in our own faith?
