"Recognized as a leading theological ethicist, Stanley Hauerwas applies his theory of the narrative formation of Christian character to the field of social ethics.

Naming the silences : God, medicine, and the problem of suffering by Stanley Hauerwas( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing heavily on stories of ill and dying children to illustrate and clarify his discussion of theological issues, Stanley Hauerwas explores why we seek explanations for suffering and evil so desperately in today's world. Modern medicine, he declares, has too often become a noisy way to hide the gaping silences created by the painful experience of childhood illness and death. Alternatively, he shows us a God who "can give a voice to that pain in a manner that at least gives us a way to go on."--Publisher's description

Dispatches from the front : theological engagements with the secular by Stanley Hauerwas( Book )

11 editions published between 1944 and 1995 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

God knows it is hard to make God boring, Stanley Hauerwas writes, but American Christians, aided and abetted by theologians, have accomplished that feat. Whatever might be said about Hauerwas--and there is plenty--no one has ever accused him of being boring, and in this book he delivers another jolt to all those who think that Christian theology is a matter of indifference to our secular society. At once Christian theology and social criticism, this book aims to show that the two cannot be separated. In this spirit, Hauerwas mounts a forceful attack on current sentimentalities about the significance of democracy, the importance of the family, and compassion, which appears here as a literally fatal virtue. In this time of the decline of religious knowledge, when knowing a little about a religion tends to do more harm than good, Hauerwas offers direction to those who would make Christian discourse both useful and truthful. Animated by a deep commitment, his essays exhibit the difference that Christian theology can make in the shaping of lives and the world
In good company : the Church as polis by Stanley Hauerwas( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With this collection of essays, celebrated theologian Stanley Hauerwas attempts to foment a modest revolution by forcing Christians to take themselves more seriously as Christians and to recognize the unifying beliefs and practices characteristic of their faith - a faith that makes them a political entity apart from the re of the world. By exposing a different account of politics - the church polis and "counter-story" to the world's politics - Hauerwas helps Christians see that in fact, God has given them the means to escape the destructive practices of the world by placing them "in good company" with one another, Catholic and Protestant alike

A greater freedom : biotechnology, love, and human destiny : in dialogue with Hans Jonas and Jürgen Habermas by Stephan Kampowski( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does biotechnology touch on human destiny? What are its promises and challenges? In search for a response, the present volume turns to the thought of Hans Jonas, one of the pioneers and founding fathers of bioethics. The continued relevance of his ideas is exemplified by the way Jürgen Habermas applies them to the current debate. The chief promise of biotechnology is to increase our freedom by overcoming the limits of the human condition. The main risk of biotechnology, as both Jonas and Habermas see it, is to diminish or outright abolish our capacity for responsibility and morality. It is
