Item Description...
Overview
Here leading theological ethicist Stanley Hauerwas applies his theory of the narrative formation of Christian character to the field of social ethics by showing why any consideration of the truth of Christian convictions cannot be divorced from the kind of community the church is and should be. The author shows how discussions of christology and the authority of scripture involve questions about what kind of community the church must be to rightly tell the stories of God. He challenges the dominant assumption of contemporary Christian social ethics that there is a special relation between Christianity and some form of liberal democratic social system.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Community of Character  Jan 18, 2006
In general,Hauerwas's intelectual approach sets a serious tone. Yet he takes much too much time deliberating and not enough time just saying what he wants the reader to understand. Although thoughtful, he is not for impaitient reader.
 
Seminary Book source - amazon.com  Sep 15, 2005
The price for this book was low enough that even a seminary student could afford it. But the surprising thing is the speed of delivery.
 
Incredibly provocative  Nov 2, 2002
This was the first book of Prof. Hauerwas's that I read, and it remains my favorite. It's been over a year since I read it, so many of the details of it are fuzzy in my mind. Nonetheless, I do remember being particularly struck by his statements about marriage, abortion, and the role of the church. Not to mention a lengthy first chapter almost entirely devoted to looking at how "scripture" functions in Richard Adams' _Watership Down_. If you've not read Hauerwas yet, repent, and buy this one. If you've read his other books, still buy this one.
