Item description for After Christendom?: How the Church Is to Behave If Freedom, Justice, and a Christian Nation Are Bad Ideas by Stanley M. Hauerwas...

Liberal/conservative and modern/postmodern concepts define contemporary theological debate. Yet what if these categories are grounded in a set of assumptions about what it means to be the church in the world, presuming we must live as though God's existence does not matter? What if our theological discussion distracts us from the fact that the church is no longer able to shape the desires and habits of Christians? Hauerwas wrestles with these and similar questions constructing a theological politics necessary for the church to be the church in the world. In so doing, he challenges liberal notions of justice and freedom.

Reviews - What do customers think about After Christendom?: How the Church Is to Behave If Freedom, Justice, and a Christian Nation Are Bad Ideas?

A Critique of Liberal Democracy  Dec 30, 2002
Although this is not Hauerwas' best book, it is still an excellent read. Hauerwas challenges commonly held conceptions about how the church should interact with a democratic society. He then offers an alternative paradigm for the church, one that involves the discipline of a community to help people learn to worship God. In the last two chapters, Hauerwas explores some concrete practices that should accompany such an understanding of the church. Whether you agree with it or not, this book will certainly make you think about the way Christians should live in a democracy.
