"Invites readers into an interesting conversation, yet they will find themselves wanting to give Hauerwas their ear, to listen to the story (apologia) he is telling. Hauerwas thus achieves his aim to "attract" others to join him in the work of theology."
"Stanley Hauerwas has achieved singular preeminence among theologians in the United States as a public intellectual. . . . Any new book bearing Hauerwas's name is noteworthy."
The Christian Century
"The church needs Hauerwas's prophetic witness. His theology is courageous, challenging, and a source of hope when many ecclesial leaders seem to be despairing."
"It is hard to imagine any living theologian more celebrated than Hauerwas."
"Stanley Hauerwas writes unputdownable theology — because he believes in a God who will never put us down until it's clear how our story comes out."

There is a bit of a strange editorial occurrence (if that's what it is) in Chapter 7, in which several paragraphs are repeated verbatim, so it's a good thing that they are good paragraphs.
Within The Work of Theology, Hauerwas continues to reject the search for an unqualified universal ethic, and instead reemphasizes the need for the
church to embody a distinctly Christian ethic within a post-Christendom world. The Work of Theology provides a number of helpful reflections upon various themes related to this center that can prove helpful not only to academics and students of theology, but to the church at large. Throughout The Work of Theology, Hauerwas revisits various themes central to his thought (e.g., narrative, virtue, character, nonviolence, the church as a political body, etc.), but without simply repeating himself. He revisits these themes in refreshing ways as he continues to learn from his students, friends, and critics. (from our Fall 2015 Print Issue)
