I took a 2-day trip to IN last week for a series of meetings with some Mennonite friends and to go meet the newest Tebbe!
Whenever I drive for more than an hour by myself, I always try to think ahead about something good to listen to. I forgot to do that this time around. However, iTunes U came to the rescue and I stumbled upon a series of lectures that Stanley Hauerwas gave at my alma mater, Fuller Theological Seminary last year regarding his latest book, Hannah’s Child: A Theologian’s Memoir
At some point I learned that Stanley Hauerwas had gotten divorced and, as you might guess, jumped to some conclusions and perhaps even some judgments regarding how a Christian ethicist might reconcile such a decision. As there nearly always is, there is a huge (long, complicated, heart-wrenching) back story. In these lectures Hauerwas shares plainly and transparently about his marriage to Ann and the ins and outs of mental illness that eventually undid their marriage. Below are some different ways that you can access these lectures. Both the lectures and the Q&A sessions following them are well worth a listen.
If you use iTunes, you can get the Hauerwas lectures from Fuller in 2 formats, audio or video.
If you don’t use iTunes, you can view the lectures online using the following links…
