Discover what “contemporary theology’s foremost intellectual provocateur,” Stanley Hauerwas, has to say about several oft-debated and controversial issues. Hauerwas, one of the world’s most influential living theologians, is best known for his work and thought on Christian ethics, nonviolence, pacifism, ecclesiology, and the intersection of Christianity and politics. The Stanley Hauerwas Collection presents six volumes on postmodernity, secular idealism, natural theology, violence, Jesus’ last words, postliberalism, and more. Hauerwas analyzes what the church’s response should be to such topics and draws from numerous sources—Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr., and C. S. Lewis—to affirm his thought.
This collection includes Hauerwas’ Gifford lectures and 17 of his best sermons, as well as John Wright’s Postliberal Theology and the Church Catholic—George Lindbeck’s, David Burrell’s, and Hauerwas’ examinations of postliberalism in relation to Roman Catholic theology.
With Logos Bible Software, Scripture passages appear on mouse-over, and all cross-references link to the other resources in your digital library, making this collection powerful and easy to access—a cornerstone reference for scholarly work or personal Bible study. Perform comprehensive searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for instance, every mention of “ecclesiology” or “violence.”
