This is not an introduction to themes, theories or writers in ethics but covers most important areas. Probably the most accessible and stimulating account of what a specifically Christian ethic may look like. His work can best be explored further through the selections in The Hauerwas Reader. Originally published in 1984 this new edition includes Afterword by Hauerwas 20 years on. The best summary of Hauerwas' critique of natural law I know can be found at pp. 51-64.

We often think of Christian ethics in response to a concrete problem. Did that politician abuse his power when he dated that intern? Is it ethical for a rape victim to have an abortion? Is it permissible to lie in order to serve the greater good? Where can we go to find the resources to answer these questions?

Many Christians, especially of evangelical stripe, go to the Bible—Hauerwas goes to church. It's not that Hauerwas doesn't value scripture, but he knows that scripture was written by and formed within the church. Scripture is best read together, within the context of the church. It is in the community of the baptized that believers grow in virtue. It is in the church that Christians learn their place in God's story and have their imaginations freed to think truly and ethically.

The entire book centres around chapter 5, "Jesus: The Presence of the Peaceable Kingdom" (72-95). The story of Jesus (not Christological reflection) is "meant not only to display [Jesus'] life, but to train us to situate our lives in relation to that life" (74). The life of Jesus is characterized by nonviolent love.

"Thus to be like Jesus is to join him in the journey through which we are trained to be a people claiming citizenship in God's kingdom of nonviolent love—a love that would overcome the powers of this world, not through coercion and force, but through the power of this one man's death" (76).

The church embodies an alternate reality—true to reality. The church the place where nonviolent love reigns and thus bears witness to the world that Christ is present. (Or at least it should be thus. Violence and disunity threaten the witness of the church to its core.)

When it's time to make difficult moral and ethical decisions, we will have been apprenticed by the church into the life of Christ and will have become the sort of people capable of making those hard choices. ( )
