9780268007355: A Community of Character: Toward a Constructive Christian Social Ethic

Stanley Hauerwas, a leading theological ethicist, 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.

About the Author:

Stanley Hauerwas is Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at Duke University. He is the author of numerous books, including Christians among the Virtues, In Good Company, Suffering Presence, and Character and the Christian Life, all published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

Review:

“Hauerwas’s collection of essays represents a significant, if controversial, contribution to Christian ethics. . . . One cannot work through this volume without being provoked, challenged, and finally enlightened.”  (America)

 “In this, the best of his books to date, Stanley Hauerwas takes up again the task of presenting an ethical framework for Christian morality. . . . Significant and intellectually exciting . . . every teacher of Christian ethics should be familiar with this landmark.” (Horizons)

“Hauerwas’s narrative ethical enterprise engages the reader with its scholarly creativity, practical wisdom, and profound conviction.” (Journal of the American Academy of Religion)
