Review:

'Stanley Hauerwas' provocative, disturbing, yet mischievous perspective on Christian ethics has lent itself to caricature, and produced both disciples and humourless criticism. These thoughtful and constructive essays take engagement with Hauerwas to a new level of maturity. Sympathetically and critically, they think with him rather than in imitation or opposition.'
Professor Iain Torrance, University of Aberdeen
'Stanley Hauerwas is famous for telling his students that he doesn't want them to think for themselves, but like him. But what is striking in these essays mostly by British admirers is how much space the distinctive manner of reflection allows for them to pursue their own questions. Is there any help to be had from this most American of all theological critics for thinking about spirituality in the National Health Service, women carers in North East England, regenerating housing estates in Norwich, theology in the European University? On the evidence of this collection: plenty.'
Revd Professor Oliver O'Donovan, Christ Church, Oxford

"In a powerful chapter, Duncan Forrester looks at the church outside Dachau and the fact that some of the people who worshipped there also worked in the camp...Nigel Biggar contributes a particularly penetrating chapter that is essential reading for anyone who wants to come to grips with Hauerwas's thought...As usual John Milbank manages to be both brilliant and provocative...This is a book everyone with a serious interest in theology or ethics or a concern for the mission of the church should read."—Church of England Newspaper, 2 March 2001

"Described as one of the most provocative voices of our time, Stanley Hauerwas offers a powerful vision of what it means to be church and how we as Christians must live differently as people shaped and formed as members of a distinctive community."—Baptist Leader 25 (Winter 2000-01)

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Here you will find lively theology that matters, written with ability and passion. The book is a collection of essays which engage with the work of Stanley Hauerwas upon his sixtieth birthday. Together they represent that genuine appreciation of another's work which takes it seriously enough to recognise its value and then engages creatively and critically because the issues are so important. All the essays have a 'committed' quality about them...the whole book models a way for Christians to think and discuss together. There is nothing small-minded or negatively conscious here. It is simply a very good book. I enjoyed it immensely and commend it with enthusiasm."— Anabaptism Today, Spring 2001

"This is a stimulating collection of responses to a modern thinker rightly acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic. It deserves to be welcomed and widely read."—Church Times, 20 April 2001

"The high quality of these essays make this volume an important companion to the published [Gifford] lectures. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty and researchers."
—P. L. Urban, Jr., Choice, November 2001
“Hauerwas is a major point of reference in contemporary ethical thought. His writing is provocative and sometimes insightful. Evangelical Christian ethicists would do well to enter into a thoughtful and constructive dialogue with Hauerwas.” – Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, September 2005
