A Primer in Christian Ethics

Author(s)
Published

Publisher writes

In this classic work, Stanley Hauerwas presents an overall introduction to the themes and method that have distinguished his vision of Christian ethics. Rather than survey ethical thinkers or quandaries he develops one straightforward account of a Christian ethic, systematically displaying ideas introduced in his previous works and emphasizing peaceableness as a hallmark of Christian life.

Judges' and contributors' comments

Sam Wells: The Peaceable Kingdom brings together the tradition of virtue ethics with a theological commitment to nonviolence, showing why Jesus is foundational to both. It is still perhaps the most accessible work in the field of ecclesial ethics, one that engages the reader with Hauerwas’ thrilling synthesis of MacIntyre, Yoder, Barth and Wittgenstein.
