Is living an ethical life primarily about following rules or about the kind of people we are?
The authors of this book argue that faithful Christian discipleship is more to do with developing good habits than following rules. And forming good habits requires participation in communities that transform us, and those around us, into the kind of people who can live God's way in God's world.


The book introduces key approaches to Christian ethics through a conversation between theologians, church leaders, and Christians equipping the church for action. The main conversation partners are Stanley Hauerwas and Sam Wells who present some of their key ideas in the essays and then enter into facinating conversations with Jo Bailey Wells, Luke Bretherton, Steve Chalke, Shane Clairbourne, and Russ Rook. They explore how we can live out loud as a faithful witness of Christ in our contemporary context.
