Common Hauerwas Themes May 21, 2004
In this collection of essays, which was originally printed in 1988, Hauerwas addresses themes that have become standard fare for him over the years. Just as Barth described the threat of Hitler to Christianity in "Theological Existence Today," Hauerwas here outlines the threats he sees presenting themselves to the church and the appropriate response. Hence he presents a critique of Liberal Democracy in general and America in particular. In response, he sets forth an account of the virtues and character to be found in the church. He also emphasizes the embodied nature of the church's narrative and, of course, peace. Some of the essays are very direct while others are more obscure in their presentation. Since some of the pieces are Hauerwas at his best, they have been reprinted in other books. Also, the themes are repeated in some his later works. Other than the repetition, this is a great collection of essays.
