Stanley Hauerwas on being human, on being a theologian

I recently started reading Stanley Hauerwas’ latest book Hannah’s Child: A Theologian’s Memoir. It’s a very special book, and over the next bit I may even post a few exerpts from it. But in the meantime, here’s two videos in which Hauerwas talks about this book, the nature of theological biography, the life of a theologian, having children, engaging with Islamic thought, encountering Karl Barth and other things that have changed his life.

  1. Thanks so much for the office hours (I haven’t listened to the other yet). Very moving in places… and funny.

  2. I just finished the book. He is very honest about his life, faith, and scholarship. With much profound stuff, there is a quite a bit of disappointing stuff in it. I am hoping to blog about it in next few days. Thanks for posting great videos.
