Named by Time magazine in 2001 as the "best theologian in America," Stanley Hauerwas is a towering figure in theology today, a pacifist and author whose work has sought to integrate a variety of Christian and ethical sources. His new book, Hannah's Child, is an account of his life in theology that deals frankly with the mental illness of his first wife as well as his ecclesial journey from Methodist to Catholic to Anglican worship. In this interview, Hauerwas assesses the health of Christianity today and reflects on what it means to be a pacifist after 9/11.
