Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0268015546, Paperback)Stanley Hauerwas presents an overall introduction to the themes and method that have distinguished his vision of Christian ethics. Emphasizing the significance of Jesus’ life and teaching in shaping moral life, The Peaceable Kingdom stresses the narrative character of moral rationality and the necessity of a historic community and tradition for morality. Hauerwas systematically develops the importance of character and virtue as elements of decision making and spirituality and stresses nonviolence as critical for shaping our understanding of Christian ethics.
"Hauerwas restores our confidence that at its best theology need not fail those whose vision of the world has the integrity of the best novelists and critics." —Alasdair MacIntyre, America
