Hauerwas

Okay, here are some decent links about Hauerwas, the second theologian I’m writing about:

Christian Contrarian is the piece Jean Elshtain wrote in Time naming Hauerwas America’s “best theologian.” Hauerwas has responded that “best” is not a theological category.

This is a good, short piece on Hauerwas’s pacifism.

And Faith Fires Back is a fairly long interview with Hauerwas by Bill Cavanaugh that touches on several aspects of Hauerwas’s theology.

None of these articles gets much into Hauerwas’s development of virtue and narrative as determinative for Christian theology–the moves he made his name on in the 70s and early 80s. But the articles should provide a decent look into his character and thought for those who are interested. And for those really interested, and who haven’t noticed yet, there is quite a debate going on about Hauerwas in the comments section of my post on Milbank.

    I’m interested. Ha!

    By the way, I’ve found this site to be a treasure trove of Hauerwas’ stuff. I haven’t read the pacifist piece, but it has one of the best titles I’ve ever seen.
