Stanley Hauerwaswith Richard Bondi and David Burrell
In Truthfulness and Tragedy, Stanley Hauerwas presents a collection of essays that challenge Christian ethics.
“The distinctive aspect of the approach taken in Truthfulness and Tragedy is the use of ‘story’ to provide canons of rationality for ethics. . . . The truthfulness of our theological and ethical convictions is best determined by how they relate to and resolve the dilemmas of our existence.” — Christian Century
“A book that should be welcomed by all who care about the moral life. . . . This gleaning of Hauerwas’s thought to date gives added support to his reputation as one of the most consistently provocative ethicists working today.” — Worldview
“The essays include discussions of the nature and methodology of Christian ethics as well as discussions of more particular issues such as suicide, population control, and care for the retarded.” — Horizons
