A Cross-Shattered Church

$32.99

Paperback

With passion and insight, eminent theologian Stanley Hauerwas shows how the sermon is the best context for doing good theology in A Cross-Shattered Church. He writes, "I am convinced that the recovery of the sermon as the context for theological reflection is crucial if Christians are to negotiate the world in which we find ourselves." The book includes seventeen sermons preached by Hauerwas, which he considers his best theological work. They are divided into four sections: seeing, saying, living, and events. Sermon titles cover a broad range of topics, including (among others): Believing Is Seeing, The Glory of the Trinity, The End of Sacrifice, Was It Fitting for Jesus to Die on the Cross?, Only Fear Can Drive Out Fear, The Appeal of Jesus, Slavery as Salvation, To Be Made Human, and Water Is Thicker Than Blood. Professors and students of theology, pastors, and those interested in what Hauerwas has to say about theology and preaching will value this work.

"One of the most satisfying contexts for doing the work of theology is in sermons. That should not be surprising because throughout Christian history, at least until recently, the sermon was one of the primary places in which the work of theology was done. For the work of theology is first and foremost to exposit Scripture. That modern theology has become less and less scriptural, that modern theology has often tried to appear as a form of philosophy, is but an indication of its alienation from its proper work. I am, therefore, making these sermons available not only because I think they are my best theological work, but because I hope they exemplify the work of theology."--From the IntroductionStanley Hauerwas has established himself as one of today's most exciting theologians. Here he shows how the sermon is the best context for doing good theology. According to Hauerwas, recovering the sermon as the context for theological reflection is crucial if Christians are to negotiate the world in which they find themselves.A Cross-Shattered Church includes seventeen sermons, divided into four sections: Seeing, Saying, Living, and Events.
