Synopsis: Why does a good and all-powerful God allow us to experience pain and suffering? In the last decade this question has been dealt with often in various palliative ways, but Stanley Hauerwas claims that the query itself is a theological error. Drawing heavily on stories of ill and dying children to illustrate and clarify his discussion of theological issues, Hauerwas explores why we seek explanations for suffering and evil so desperately in today's world. Modern medicine, he declares, has too often become a noisy way to hide the gaping silences created by the painful experience of childhood illness and death. Alternatively, he shows us a God who "can give a voice to that pain in a manner that at least gives us a way to go on." Offering no easy answers and no false comfort, Naming the Silences is a provocative and sensitive exploration of a matter that concerns us all. /// STANLEY HAUERWAS is professor of theological ethics at the Divinity School of Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.... /// "Naming the Silences is one of Hauerwas's most powerful and illuminating books. He argues that attempts to develop theodicies to explain pain and suffering are theological mistakes, and he uses various fictional and other accounts to show why the illness of children challenges our understanding of God and how care should be provided through medicine as an activity of service. This valuable book deserves to be widely read and appreciated." --JAMES F. CHILDRESS, University of Virginia /// "In Naming the Silences Stanley Hauerwas uncovers the ways we use talk about God and about medicine to seek mastery of the suffering we cannot understand or name.... This book will provide both occasion for conversation and incentive for the silence of meditatiop." --GILBERT MEILAENDER, Oberlin College

About the Author: Stanley Hauerwas is Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law at Duke University. Among his many books are Resident Aliens, A Community of Character, Living Gently in a Violent World, and A Cross-Shattered Church.
