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

24 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,714 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
A community of character : toward a constructive Christian social ethic by Stanley Hauerwas( Book )

27 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recognized as a leading theological ethicist, Stanley Hauerwas applies his theory of the narrative formation of Christian character to the field of social ethics. He advances his ideas by showing why any consideration cannot be divorced from the kind of community the church is and should be. He also challenges the dominant assumption of contemporary Christian social ethics that there is a special relation between Christianity and some form of liberal democratic social system."--Publisher's description

Killing from the inside out : moral injury and just war by Robert E Meagher( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Armies know all about killing. It is what they do, and ours does it more effectively than most. We are painfully coming to realize, however, that we are also especially good at killing our own ''from the inside out, '' silently, invisibly. In every major war since Korea, more of our veterans have taken their lives than have lost them in combat. The latest research, rooted in veteran testimony, reveals that the most severe and intractable PTSD -- fraught with shame, despair, and suicide -- stems from ''moral injury.'' But how can there be rampant moral injury in what our military, our government, our churches, and most everyone else call just wars? At the root of our incomprehension lies just war theory -- developed, expanded, and updated across the centuries to accommodate the evolution of warfare, its weaponry, its scale, and its victims. Any serious critique of war, as well any true attempt to understand the profound, invisible wounds it inflicts, will be undermined from the outset by the unthinking and all-but-universal acceptance of just war doctrine. Killing from the Inside Out radically questions that theory, examines its legacy, and challenges us to look beyond it, beyond just war

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

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does biotechnology touch on human destiny? What are its promises and challenges? In search for an answer, this book 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 argued that the greater freedom is not simply freedom from constraints but freedom for our destiny: the freedom to be the benevolent, responsible, and spontaneous authors of our lives, capable of communion and love. The touchstone for evaluating any biotechnological procedure has to be this greater freedom. --

Resident aliens : life in the Christian colony by Stanley Hauerwas( Book )

19 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this bold and visionary book, two leading Christian thinkers explore the "alien" status of Christians in today's world and offer a compelling new vision of how the Christian church can regain its vitality, battle its malaise, reclaim its capacity to nourish souls, and stand firmly against the illusions, pretensions, and eroding values of today's world. Hauerwas and Willimon call for a radical new understanding of the church. By renouncing the emphasis on personal psychological categories, they offer a vision of the church as a colony, a holy nation, a people, a family standing for sharply focused values in a devalued world. --

In good company : the Church as polis by Stanley Hauerwas( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 723 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

Through varied genres--from essays, to letters, from co-writing to dialogue--Hauerwas and Coles enact a politics evangelical in its radical receptivity across strange differences, and which cultivating power in relation to vulnerability."--Back cover

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

14 editions published between 1944 and 1995 in English and held by 648 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
