DESCRIPTION
A "how-to" book on theology from a world- renowned theologian

Once named by Time magazine as the "best theologian in America," Stanley Hauerwas addresses the "how to" of theology in this book. Revisiting some of his earliest philosophical and theological views in order to clarify his previous work — and to correct mistaken characterizations of him and his work — Hauerwas here explores theological reflection as an exercise in practical reason.

Hauerwas discusses a wide array of topics in such chapters as these:
  • "How I Think I Learned to Think Theologically"
  • "How to Do or Not to Do Protestant Ethics"
  • "The `How' of Theology and the Ministry"
  • "How to Write a Theological Sentence"
  • "How to Be Theologically Funny"
  • "How (Not) to Retire Theologically"
In a postscript he responds thoughtfully to Nicholas M. Healy's 2014 book Hauerwas: A (Very) Critical Introduction.
