Description

Product Description Leading theological ethicist Stanley Hauerwas 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. Review “Hauerwas’s narrative ethical enterprise engages the reader with its scholarly creativity, practical wisdom, and profound conviction.” ? Journal of the American Academy of Religion About the Author Stanley Hauerwas is Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at Duke University.
