Summary: This study in Christian ethics explores the crucial role of patience in the lives of individuals, families, communities, and nations. Harned argues that the exercise of patience is crucial to family life as well as to any kind of communal life. Patience has its roots in the Christian contemplative tradition and stresses the pastoral themes of reconciliation, love of neighbor, the steady work of relationships, and the endurance of illness and aging.

Synopsis: In this book, David Baily Harned makes a persuasive case for the significance of patience as an essential ingredient of the moral life. In a bold and invigorating manner, the author addresses contemporary existence-the lives of individuals, families, communities, and nations-and demonstrates how the Christian vision informs our efforts to live in a chaotic and violent world as faithful, hopeful, loving children of God. This essay in theological ethics is rooted in classic texts: the Old and New Testaments, as well as the writings of Augustine, Gregory I, Thomas Aquinas, Thomas à Kempis, John Calvin, Søren Kierkegaard, and W. H. Vanstone. In graceful prose and careful analysis, David Harned both inspires and instructs. This new edition also includes an afterword by one of his former students who explores the value of this study by applying its insights to the life and leadership of George Washington.

About the Author: David Baily Harned (PhD, Yale) is a retired professor of religious studies who taught at Williams, Smith, and Allegheny colleges, as well as at the University of Virginia, Louisiana State University, and the University of Edinburgh. In addition, he served as department chairman at Virginia, president of Allegheny, and dean of arts and sciences at LSU.
