Stanley Hauerwas is perhaps the most discussed Christian ethicist alive today. His radical pacifism and his virtue approach to ethics have made him a hero in the eyes of some and a villain in the eyes of others. In this volume, Hauerwas has selected some of the essays that capture the heart of his message to the churches. The book then records the real conversations between Hauerwas, Samuel Wells, and some key Christian leaders on a range of ethical themes and issues rising from those essays. Topics include: virtue ethics and Christian communities; life and death; crime and punishment; war and peace; and, sex and shopping. The book serves as a radical, stimulating, and challenging invitation to live differently.
