Among his many honors, Dr. Hauerwas was named in 2001 “America’s best theologian” by TIME magazine. Also in 2001, Hauerwas delivered the prestigious Gifford Lectures at St. Andrews College in Scotland.
As the country’s foremost Christian pacifist, Hauerwas has written on a wide range of topics from war, peace, law, American politics, the Christian Church and ethics. In ethics, Dr. Hauerwas has been at the forefront of the resurgence of Aristotelian virtue ethics in the American academy.
