Description

A compelling memoir, this acclaimed book tells the story of Stanley Hauerwas, once hailed by Time magazine as the "best theologian in America." In Hannah's Child Hauerwas gives a frank account of his own life interwoven with the development of his thought. With genuine humility Hauerwas describes his intellectual struggles with faith, how he has dealt with the complex reality of marriage to a mentally ill partner, and the gift of friendships that have influenced his character. Throughout the narrative shines Hauerwas's conviction that the tale of his life is worth telling only because the greater Christian story has provided foundation and direction for his own.
