With the release of Stanley Hauerwas’ newest book this week, we thought it would be a good time to offer an introductory guide to the work of “America’s Best Theologian” (TIME magazine, 2001).
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.

6. Living Gently in a Violent World: The Prophetic Witness of Weakness
co-written with Jean Vanier
This is one of Hauerwas’s most accessible books, and given that it was co-written with Jean Vanier, renders its one of the most practical titles on this list.
