A Community of Character: Towards a Constructive Christian Social Ethic

Author(s): Stanley Hauerwas

Society & Culture

Stanley Hauerwas, a leading theological ethicist, shows how discussions of Christology and the authority of scripture involve questions about what kind of community the church must be to rightly tell the stories of God. He challenges the dominant assumption of contemporary Christian social ethics that there is a special relation between Christianity and some form of liberal democratic social system."
