Stanley Hauerwas and Jean Vanier
How are Christians to live in a violent and wounded world? Rather than contending for privilege by wielding power and authority, we can witness prophetically from a position of weakness. The church has much to learn from an often overlooked community–those with disabilities. In this fascinating book, theologian Stanley Hauerwas and Jean Vanier, founder of the worldwide L’Arche communities, carefully explore the contours of a countercultural community that embodies a different way of being and witnesses to a new order–one marked by radical forms of gentleness, peacemaking and faithfulness. The authors’ explorations shed light on what it means to be human and how we are to live. This invigorating conversation is for everyday Christians who desire to live faithfully in a world that is violent and broken. From the publisher.
