Stanley Hauerwas is Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law at Duke University. He is the author of Christians among the Virtues, In Good Company, A Community of Character, and Character and the Christian Life, all published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

“In describing Hauerwas’ work as Christian ethics, one can allow that phrase its full scope of meaning. It is the work of an ethician who is thoroughly conversant with that branch of philosophy and comes to grips with its major issues. He is also firmly committed to the view that, in modifying the substantive ‘ethics’ with the adjective ‘Christian,’ one is designating a distinct reality. . . . Hauerwas invites us to share an understanding of ethics in general and of Christian ethics in particular that is a great deal subtler and more complicated than most currently popular versions of those subjects. For contemporary Christian ethics to accept his invitation will mean letting itself in for some very rigorous and versatile thinking.” — America

“This is a work that demands to be taken seriously as a constructive proposal for how one is to do and understand Christian Ethics.” — The Review of Politics
