Hey, thanks for the tag.

I'm curious, how did Hauerwas and Willimon's book change your life?

I have that book and like it.

Somehow I figured that question might come up. That was the book that Hauerwas based his ethics class on while I was in seminary. When I took that class my eyes were changed and on somethings opened. As I face theological issues now in ministry I find myself gravitating back to the lessons I learned in that class. The joke was (while taking the class) that everyone leaves a Hauerwas class, Hauerwashed. When answering that questions I looked at my bookshelf and that is the one that jumped out to me. I can see it's tenticals in my thought process and everyday ministry.
