Return of the Virtues

with Stanley Hauerwas

and Jonathan Wilson


Stanley Hauerwas will teach from his forthcoming book The Character of Virtue: Letters to a Godson (Eerdmans).

Hauerwas will also do an evening lecture on Bonhoeffer entitled Why Bonhoeffer Matters for Anyone (But Particularly for Pastors).

Hauerwas will spend 6 hours of class instruction time with students and 2 hours in the evening lecture and followup. The remaining 7 hours of classroom instruction will be offered by
Rev. Dr. Jonathan Wilson.
