I’ve written about Stanley Hauerwas here before but thought it might be better to let him speak for himself a while. Hauerwas is a theologian teaching at Duke University these days, a former Notre Dame professor, a Texan, a brash and controversial ethicist, and author of numerous books covering everything from Christian community (church) to Christian non-violence (pacifism). He has influenced my thinking more tan any other author or theologian by confusing me, angering me, and provoking me to flip through the pages of other authors’ works, the bible and history to better understand God’s mind on these matters. Here’s hoping he provokes you in the same way.
Notable quote from Part 1: “When Christians kill Christians it’s not murder; it’s suicide.”
