He is one of the most brilliant and original thinkers of his generation. He has written numerous books including: The Peaceable Kingdom (1983), A Community of Character (1981), Resident Aliens (1989), Christians Among the Virtues (1997), Wilderness Wanderings: Probing Twentieth Century Theology (1997), Sanctify Them in the Truth (1998), and With the Grain of the Universe: the Church’s Witness and Natural Theology (2001).

Editorial Reviews

"An important, often insightful and almost always provocative book that would be unwise to ignore." Studies in Christian Ethics<!--end-->

"Substantial and significant… the early fruit of an important recent theological turn in theology, towards taking worship as a major source of insight, challenge and guidance… Stanley Hauerwas is probably the most creative, provocative, and exasperating theologian in the English-speaking world. He has enlisted a mighty band of able and argumentative disciples who dominate much theological discussion today, especially in Christian ethics." Times Literary Supplement


"Love God and love your neighbour have been the twin commandments in the New Testament from the beginning. Nevertheless, worshipping God and practising neighbourly charity have usually gone in tandem, essential but separate activities. At best, moral theology may come in as a sequel or even appendix to dogmatics. The originality of this book lies in grounding Christian ethics not even in dogmatics but in the liturgy of the eucharist. Wonderfully worked out by the many fine scholars gathered by Hauerwas and Wells, this is a genuinely new turn in the history of Christian experience." Fergus Kerr, Regent, Blackfriars, Oxford


“This accessible volume will interest undergraduates and more advanced scholars alike.” Karen Melham, Emory University

“The volume offers a salutary reminder that Christian ethics is not simply one among other theoretical enterprises, but rather a sustained and disciplined attempt to understand the deepest dimensions of the Christian life. It rightly observes that Christian worship (at least when done well) is paradigmatic for discipleship and central means of moral information. The best chapters in this Companion communicate a deep sense of the distinctive nature of Christian ethics in a way that benefits us all.” Stephen J. Pope, Boston College

"I recommend this work especially for faculty of Christian ethics courses and worship courses at seminaries and church affiliated colleges." Teaching Theology & Religion
