Hauerwas on Haeurwas

Here's an early peak at next week's podcast: an interview with Stanley Hauerwas, the Duke University scholar who was named America's "best theologian" by Times magazine in 2001. ("Best," Hauerwas demurred, "is not a theological category.")

Hauerwas discusses his new memoir, Hannah's Child, which deals frankly with the mental illness of his first wife as well as his "ecclesial promiscuity." (Hauerwas's words, not mine: he has worshipped in a variety of churches in his life, including Methodist, Catholic and Anglican). In our conversation, conducted at King's College here in New York, Hauerwas assesses the health of Christianity today and reflects on what it means to be a pacifist after 9/11.
