In this volume, noted theologian Stanley Hauerwas presents seventeen of his excellent sermons. Covering a diverse set of theological topics, Hauerwas' sermons give thoughtfulness and insight into scripture, practical Christian life, Christ and the incarnation, as well as a wide variety of issues essential to Christianity.
In addition to the sermons, Hauerwas provides his readers with three thoughtful essays examining leadership in the church, giving advice to Christians just beginning their education at college, and one of the greatest challenges that faces church leadership and how to guard against it: loneliness.
