The latest from Stanley Hauerwas: Memoir and Movies

Coming May 15, 2010: Stanley Hauerwas, Hannah's Child: A Theologian's Memoir (Eerdmans).

Stanley Hauerwas - Hannah's Child - A Theologian's Memoir

This introduction is now (January 31, 2010) available for download at Eerdmans's website.

Dr. Hauerwas is Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at Duke Divinity School. 

I also recommend four snippets from interviews with Hauerwas from

In this first video (1:50) Hauerwas describes the comfort of the tactile in baptism which remind us of the reality that we in our dying are not alone.

Aloneness from The Work Of The People on Vimeo.

In this second video (2:55) Hauerwas worries about efforts that focus on church growth which end up producing homogenous congregations and entertaining worship in which the people are spectators rather than participants .

In this third snippet at Are You Aware You're Going To Die? or at Facebook (3:58), Hauerwas reflects on how many Christians live in denial that they are going to die. 

In this fourth snippet (1:12) only at Facebook, Hauerwas says, "because we are not in control anymore, we are free."

See also more audio by Hauerwas at and Socratic Audio Files.

See also Hauerwas's other recent books:

I also highly recommend the fascinating dense article by Hauerwas on theological interpretation of Scripture.

Stanley Hauerwas, "Why 'The Way the Words Run' Matters: Reflections on Becoming a 'Major Biblical Scholar,' in The Word Leaps the Gap: Essays on Scripture and Theology in Honor of Richard B. Hays (ed. J. R. Wagner, A. K. Grieb and C. K. Rowe; Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2008), 1-19.

Special 25th Anniversary Issue Modern Theology: a quarter century retrospect and prospect.  See my post about it: 25th Anniversary Edition of Modern Theology

If you need subscribers only access: I have access to it through the Duke University library and my Duke NetID and Password. (Go to Duke Divinity Library.
