2018 Laing Lecturer
Dr. Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity & Law at Duke Divinity School, is one of America’s most influential and respected public intellectuals. He has a reputation for speaking honestly and incisively into some of our time’s most pressing issues. His numerous publications have advocated for nonviolence within warring societies and the pressing need for virtuous Christian communities. Recent works such as War and the American Difference (2011) have brought him to the forefront of public discourse regarding the relationship between politics and faith. In 2001, Time magazine named him “America’s Best Theologian.” He famously responded that “ ‘Best’ is not a theological category.”
