Living Out Loud
Full Product Description
The authors of this book argue that faithful Christian discipleship is more to do with developing good habits than following rules. And forming good habits requires participation in communities that transform us, and those around us, into the kind of people who can live God's way in God's world.
The book introduces key approaches to Christian ethics through a conversation between theologians, church leaders, and Christians equipping the church for action. The main conversation partners are Stanley Hauerwas and Sam Wells who present some of their key ideas in the essays and then enter into facinating conversations with Jo Bailey Wells, Luke Bretherton, Steve Chalke, Shane Clairbourne, and Russ Rook. They explore how we can live out loud as a faithful witness of Christ in our contemporary context.
Living Out Loud by Stanley Hauerwas, Sam Wells, and friends was published by Paternoster Press in April 2010 and is our 22021st best seller. The ISBN for Living Out Loud is 9781842277201.

Living Out LoudJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Living Out Loud engages the passion and praxis of witness in our broken world! The sub-title of this book is Conversations about virtue, ethics and evangelicalism and that indicates the academic take on this all... Though don’t let that put you off! It is a literary conversation between theologians and church leaders from the breadth of evangelical traditions about the meaning of Christian life in today’s world.
The bulk of the book consists of essays by Stanley Hauerwas and Sam Wells that have been published elsewhere and that cover topics such as ‘Theology as narrative’, ‘How we lay bricks and make disciples’, ‘On developing hopeful virtue’ and ‘How common worship forms local character.’ These essays are interspersed by two dynamic and compelling ‘roundtable conversations’ on ‘Evangelicalism and virtue ethics’ involving Stanley Hauerwas and Sam Wells in discussion with Jo Bailey Wells, Luke Bretherton, Steve Chalke, Shane Claiborne and Russell Rook. The primary issue under discussion is whether Christian ethics is primarily about following rules or becoming a certain type of person and the main argument that emerges from the book is that faithful Christian discipleship has more to do with developing good habits than following rules. In addition, forming good habits requires participation in communities that can transform us and those around so that we become the kind of people who can live in God’s way in God’s world.
This book is a helpful way into the discussion of virtue ethics from a provocatively evangelical perspective. Hauerwas' discipleship essay is worth it alone, yet there is so very much more in this stirring Paternoster title. Valued, engaging and needful!
