  Liberalism, race, and Stanley Hauerwas. - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
According to Hauerwas, American liberalism, at its base, holds that the best or only moral community we can have is based on guaranteeing the principle of the freedom of each individual citizen to do as he or she pleases, so long as he or she does not violate the legitimate equal freedom of others.
Hauerwas views the church (i.e., the Body of Christ) as devoted not to the principles of memoriless liberalism but, rather, to a particular God and a particular way of life that follows Jesus.
Hauerwas insists that under liberal social arrangements family is viewed as a "contractual" agreement rather than as a community of commitment and responsibility even to persons we do not choose to associate with.

 Theology Today - Vol 51, No. 4 - January 1995 - ARTICLE - Ally or Opponent? A Response to Stanley Hauerwas
Hauerwas is correct that, by my definition, when I apply it to myself, it places me on the side of those whom I view as the "good guys." If it did not, I would not apply it to myself.
Hauerwas comes from the side of modern assumptions, it seems to me, when he interprets my statement that I believe that God is working to save the creation as "knowing" too much.
Hauerwas not only thinks I "know" too much about God but also feels distaste for what I "know." To him it depicts God as too "nice." No doubt, in addition to differences in taste and temperament and preferred rhetoric, there are real differences between us that have both theoretical and practical importance.

 CNN/TIME - America's Best
Hauerwas is happy to say that his rise to prominence is not the result of any special intellectual gift.
Hauerwas has respect for a position known as the just-war perspective, a mode of reflection on war's occasional tragic necessity, either for self-defense or to protect those who might otherwise be slaughtered.
If Hauerwas' rough speech and pointed views are taken as scandalous within academic society, he believes that what really scandalizes the so-called wisdom of the world is the message of the cross.

Stanley Hauerwas has for many years been a cherished friend and colleague, and we sincerely hope that will continue to be the case.
Hauerwas says faithful Christians refuse “to use violent means in the name of a good cause.” The crucial distinction here is between violence and the use of force in the service of justice.
Hauerwas omits, namely, that Muslim leaders bear the primary responsibility for saying whether or not it is to be understood as a war of civilizations.

 Semlink / Stanley Hauerwas on Salvation (CLOSED)
Hauerwas states that "salvation is not individualistic- that it is not one person receives for himself or herself, that it is political." My belief is that salvation was instituted by God for a person to be redeemed from sin.
Hauerwas argues that salvation as the reign of God is an “alternative to the way the world is constituted.” Some posts have argued that God already reigns, and certainly the omnipotent Creator does rule over all creation and sustains all living things by his Word.
Hauerwas obviously has a predilection for viewing things in political terms, and so when he says salvation is not individualistic, I think this is connected with the idea of salvation being constituted by the KINGDOM of God.

 Can't we just argue? - ideas of Stanley Hauerwas Christian Century - Find Articles
STANLEY HAUERWAS talks about Catholics like Jane Goodall talks about chimpanzees: he spent many years among them as an outsider, came to appreciate their strange practices and rituals, and grew to love them so much that he almost, but not quite, felt like one of them.
Hauerwas became fascinated by a group of people who appeared to be so constituted by their relationships to one another.
Hauerwas may not believe in Protestantism as such, but he remains Protestant as long as Protestant churches are necessary to remind the Catholic Church that it is not yet what it is called to be.

 STANLEY HAUERWAS an interview with Michael Quirk
Can anyone as resolutely "traditional" as Hauerwas on the subject of marriage and sexual fidelity not see the contradiction when he quips that "Gays, as a group, are morally superior to Christians, as a group" simply because they have managed to be ostracized by the U.S. military on account of their sexuality?
While his favored form of writing is the short essay rather than the standard-issue scholarly book, his work is scholarly, in the best sense of the word: well-acquainted with the relevant theological literature, and enriched by his proficiency in understanding other genres of writing, such as philosophy, social criticism, and the novel.
Stanley Hauerwas: It fits as part of my larger argument that a natural theology is unintelligible separated from a full doctrine of God.

 Cover story: Paths to Peace: Theologian’s feisty faith challenges status quo
While U.S. bombs were bursting in midair, Hauerwas, known for his salty tongue, was not about to crawl in the crowded hole full of those reluctant to speak out amid a post- 9/11 hysteria that left virtually no room for dissent.
Hauerwas respects those who allow for Christians to fight a “just war.”; However, he knows of no war that has met the rigid just-war criteria.
Another consequence of 9/11, said Hauerwas, is evident in what he sees as a new political correctness, one that has no association with the postmodern left.

 Stanley Hauerwas - Theopedia
Stanley Hauerwas (July 24, 1940-) is a United Methodist theologian and ethicist who is currently the Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC.
As a teacher and lecturer, Hauerwas is known for his wit, sharp criticisms of positions he disagrees with, breadth of reading, and (more than) occasional use of profanity, which he explains as being the result of having a brick-layer father.
While Hauerwas has been self-identified with the United Methodist Church for the bulk of his career, as of his latest work, he has begun to identify himself as an Anglican and attends an Episcopal Church in Chapel Hill, NC.

 blip » Christianity and Politics: Steve Bush’s misunderstanding of Stanley Hauerwas on democracy
Hauerwas echos this Augustinian thinking: “Augustine maintained that true virtue is impossible without true piety, which for Augustine is the right worship of the true God” (Performing the Faith,221).
For Hauerwas (building upon his mentor Julian Hartt) the church is not the eschatological kingdom, yet it is the space where one experiences the foretaste of the kingdom and learns to see that inbreaking eschaton in this world.
Hauerwas cares so much about the way concepts like ‘justice’ and ‘peace’ and ‘democracy’ are emptied of meaning because he worries that these words operate in public discourse as propagandizing slogans that a lot of times paper over important disagreements.

 Stanley Hauerwas, “The Liberalism of Reinhold Niebuhr” (Commentary by Gabriel Fackre for circulation among our ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Hauerwas fails to quote Niebuhr’s criticism of Bultmann a few pages later (Kegley, 522), and  the sentence which follows the one cited which does indicate that Niebuhr gives his own understanding of that scholarship more credence than it deserves, but also affirms his belief in the resurrection of Christ ontologically.
King bases her argument on a thesis similar to Hauerwas, that Niebuhr’s early ideas are in simple continuity with his later convictions, quoting liberally from the former to argue the latter.
Hauerwas’ framework of interpreting Niebuhr in terms of his 1914 BD thesis, earlier liberal assumptions, and even mid-career “neo-orthodoxy” is innocent of these discontinuities.

 KtB - Do the Right Thing, Dammit
Stanley Hauerwas, a professor of divinity and law at Duke University, is perhaps the most influential Christian theologian in academia today.
But for Hauerwas, the ethical discourse of a Christian thinker is ultimately grounded in the basic duty of the believer: to serve as a witness to the world of the redemption of humanity through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Hauerwas is appealing because he doesn't pretend that (as Alfred North Whitehead put it) "religion is what a man does with his solitude." When you are a teenager, of course, solitude is the issue.

Hauerwas readily acknowledges that his robustly Trinitarian conception is something of an embarrassment, even a scandal, to those theologians who see “natural theology” as a way to build bridges within a pluralistic modern world.
Hauerwas says that Niebuhr thought Christianity was true because it confirms universal and timeless humanistic principles and because it counters the egoism of social groups.
Hauerwas is a Protestant whose previous writings have drawn appreciatively on Catholic moral theology to develop themes of character and virtue in the moral life.

Ten key Hauerwas essays on disability are brought together in a single volume—essays which reflect and illustrate his thinking on the theology of disability, along with responses to each essay from multidisciplinary authoritative sources including Jean Vanier, Michael Bérubé, John O'Brien and Ray S. Anderson.

Included is a new essay by Dr. Hauerwas responding to the contributors to the book.

 Boston Collaborative Encyclopedia of Western Theology: Stanley Hauerwas
Stanley Hauerwas is the most prolific and comprehensive, as well as perhaps the most important, theological ethicist alive.
Hauerwas argues, “Christianity is unintelligible without witnesses, that is, without people whose practices exhibit their committed assent to a particular way of structuring the whole” (Hauerwas, 2001a, 214).
Ultimately, one’s evaluation of Hauerwas will be tied closely to one’s evaluation of modernity and to whether one sees in modernity a necessary turning away from superstition or a kind of superstition itself.

 For God, Not Country: The un-American theology of Stanley Hauerwas [Free Republic]
What costs Hauerwas the most friends, besides his foul mouth, are his aversion to liberalism and his preference for, as he puts it, "all the things about tradition-formed virtuous people." Tradition means memories—memories that persist over generations because parents dare to indoctrinate their young.
Hauerwas sent his student Father Michael Baxter to talk with Lentricchia, and soon Lentricchia was on a retreat at Mepkin Abbey in South Carolina, praying the liturgy daily, the one he had known as a child.
Hauerwas takes some admirable positions, but he seems to be too much the modern academic, always searching for the authentic or real, and always having it turn out to be just another academic pose or pretence when he finds it.

Hauerwas' arguments are clear and to the point, and some of his comments are jarring; but then, we need to be shaken from our complacency.
Hauerwas does not qualify his remarks on abortion in terms of right to life, right to one's body, etc. instead Hauerwas' view of life is that it is a gift of God that we should not address as a right because rights are ostensibly legal entitlements.
Hauerwas has a reputation as a sort of theological curmudgeon, but in reality he is as clear a thinker as we could hope for in an ethically confused time.

Hauerwas rightly surmises that it is wrong to assume a major shift between Bonhoeffer's work and his life.
For better or worse, Hauerwas is an occasional writer; and this is another collection of the occasional pieces for which he is known, this one organized around a cluster of issues related to pacifism and “pacifist” response to the events of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath.
Bonhoeffer and Hauerwas are natural allies on the matter of faithful performance; and the combination of Bonhoeffer, Hauerwas, and Yoder is a potentially revolutionary conversation.

Hauerwas calls Christians to be "resident aliens," confronting worldly issues from a radical perspective of faith.
Although Hauerwas’ fundamental interest is in the development of moral discourse within the contemporary Christian community, he lectures widely to church and academic audiences and has written hundreds of essays and articles on dozens of topics.
