"Sharp, thoughtful critique of a highly respected theologian"Stanley Hauerwas's work is well known and much admired, but Nicholas Healy believes that it has not yet been subjected to the kind of sustained critical analysis that is appropriate for such a popular and controversial Christian thinker. In Hauerwas: A (Very) Critical Introduction Healy fills that gap.After a general introduction to Hauerwas, Healy examines three main areas of Hauerwas's thought: his method, his social theory, and his theology. According to Healy, Hauerwas's overriding concern for ethics and church-based apologetics so dominates his thinking that he systematically distorts Christian doctrine. Healy illustrates the thinness of Hauerwas's theology and argues that it needs substantial revision.
