In 2001 Time magazine named Stanley Hauerwas “America’s Best Theologian.” Hauerwas found the distinction humorous, but it catapulted him and his pacifist, anti-nationalistic views into the spotlight at a time when our country was poised for war. Soon he was also America’s best-known theologian. His new book, Hannah’s Child: A Theologian’s Memoir (Purchase US  | Purchase UK ) traces his life and the development of his intellectual thought. He joins host Frank Stasio to talk about everything from his working-class Texas roots to the state of Christianity today. Listen to the interview here .
