5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent antidote to fundementalism, February 7, 2001
A. Hogan (Brooklyn, NY USA) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Stanley Hauerwas belongs to that minority,{along with Will D. Campbell, Clarence Jordan, Daniel Berrigan, S.J., William Stringfellow, and a few others} who shake the rafters of conventional christianity. The literal,fundementalist's who have dominated the media for the past 20 years would be sent into shivers by much of what Hauerwas writes. Essays such as Why Gays{as a group} are morally superior to Christians{as a group} are brilliant, though I'm certain would disturb many{which ,is one of the reasons Mr Hauerwas writes.} Mr. Hauerwas has been on a crusade about the mentally handicapped, and how we can LEARN FROM THEM,and how we can better serve them and become better ourselves{much of this has been covered by henri Nouwen and the living saint, J`ean vanier]Still, with essay's on Karl Barth and William Stringfellow, My Hauerwas once again is challenging in his views of what it means to be a christian in America. Challenging, thought provoking. What better compliment to afford a theologian?
