Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Beginning mid-conversation as if at a salon, Hauerwas (Hannah's Child) engages in dialogues with fellow ethicists and theologians such as Karl Barth and John Howard Yoder, and even with himself. He reviews his life of teaching and studying to see its end, professionally and physically, in order to reflect on eschatology, the theological subject of death and destiny. In part one, Hauerwas approaches the end by returning to the beginning — creation; part two covers church and politics, including Protestantism's end and the church's/es' unification (Which church? he asks). Included in this section is an essay on war and peace, but that topic threads through the section, a given for this Christian pacifist. Part three focuses on sickness and death; he refreshes an essay, 'Suffering Presence,' from 1986 and considers cloning, disability, and 'Doing Nothing Gallantly.' This compendium is not for dipping; it is for digesting after time spent preparing. Hauerwas employs seminary jargon ('deontological,' 'doxologically,' 'alterity') as precise words rather than snowballs. Though demanding and disorganized, the heavily footnoted book offers homages to the end. "
