Abstract

In this concluding article of a special issue based on a diverse, national, 198 family (N = 476 persons) qualitative study, the concepts of deep respect and holy envy are posited as research-enhancing strengths in rigorous qualitative inquiry. Both concepts are defined and illustrated as the authors share specific strengths of seven religious-ethnic groups that have elicited their holy envy. The need for deep respect and holy envy in social science and in contemporary American life is underscored.
