Editorial Reviews

"An important, often insightful and almost always provocative bookthat would be unwise to ignore." Studies in ChristianEthics<!--end-->

"Substantial and significant… the early fruit of animportant recent theological turn in theology, towards takingworship as a major source of insight, challenge and guidance…Stanley Hauerwas is probably the most creative, provocative, andexasperating theologian in the English-speaking world. He hasenlisted a mighty band of able and argumentative disciples whodominate much theological discussion today, especially in Christianethics." Times Literary Supplement

"Love God and love your neighbour have been the twincommandments in the New Testament from the beginning. Nevertheless,worshipping God and practising neighbourly charity have usuallygone in tandem, essential but separate activities. At best, moraltheology may come in as a sequel or even appendix to dogmatics. Theoriginality of this book lies in grounding Christian ethics noteven in dogmatics but in the liturgy of the eucharist. Wonderfullyworked out by the many fine scholars gathered by Hauerwas andWells, this is a genuinely new turn in the history of Christianexperience." Fergus Kerr, Regent, Blackfriars, Oxford

“This accessible volume will interest undergraduates andmore advanced scholars alike.” Karen Melham, EmoryUniversity

“The volume offers a salutary reminder that Christianethics is not simply one among other theoretical enterprises, butrather a sustained and disciplined attempt to understand thedeepest dimensions of the Christian life. It rightly observes thatChristian worship (at least when done well) is paradigmatic fordiscipleship and central means of moral information. The bestchapters in this Companion communicate a deep sense of thedistinctive nature of Christian ethics in a way that benefits usall.” Stephen J. Pope, Boston College

"I recommend this work especially for faculty of Christianethics courses and worship courses at seminaries and churchaffiliated colleges." Teaching Theology & Religion
