Hauerwas

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.

1) Hannah’s Child: A Theologian’s Memoir

 

This late-in-life memoir is a great place to start as it offers a biographical context for understanding Hauerwas’s theology.

Preaching after Christendom
 
A Review of

Without Apology: Sermons for Christ’s Church
Stanley Hauerwas

Paperback: Seabury, 2013
Buy now:  [ Amazon ]  [ Kindle ]
 
Reviewed by Joseph Krall

 
 
Submitting a late review of an untimely book, this reviewer offers his apologies to the readers of the Englewood Review. The untimeliness of Stanley Hauerwas’s latest collection of sermons, Without Apology (Seabury, NY: 2013), is of a different kind. It is an unapologetic untimeliness, neither ashamed of the Gospel nor trying to render its foolishness comprehensible or defensible in an era after Christendom. I would call it a holy untimeliness, because in these pages a Christian theologian and ethicist walks to the pulpit and speaks to a “peculiar people,” the church.

The Wake Up Call – December 11, 2014

 

Stanley Hauerwas

Today is the birthday of theologian Stanley Hauerwas!

Although I don’t always agree with him, Stanley Hauerwas’s work (and that of his many students, e.g., Phil Kenneson and others associated with The Ekklesia Project) has been absolutely vital to the Slow Church book that John Pattison and I co-wrote.

In honor of his birthday, I pick out 10 brief video clips of Hauerwas talking about key virtues and practices related to Slow Church. If you want to read one book by Stanley Hauerwas that is most compatible with Slow Church, I suggest Living Gently in a Violent World (co-written with Jean Vanier).

Several of these clips were made by Travis Reed of The Work of the People. Be sure to visit his website, check out other extraordinary videos he has created and contribute generously to his work!
