This collection of essays, lectures, and sermons by Stanley Hauerwas focuses on the central challenge, risk, and difficulty of the necessity of working with words about God. If the word “God” is to be properly used by Christians, it must be disciplined by Christian practice. Like any word, we must learn how to say it correctly.

The essays and sermons in Working with Words reveal that the vibrancy of Stanley Hauerwas arises from his single-minded, manic determination to learn from Jesus and the Scriptures to see and speak as a Christian—and to teach other Christians to do the same.
—Peter J. Leithart, president, Trinity House Institute for Biblical, Liturgical, & Cultural Studies
