Christians among the Virtues investigates the distinctiveness of virtues as illuminated by Christian practice, using a discussion of Aristotle's ethics together with the work of significant contemporary scholars such as Alasdair MacIntyre and Martha Nussbaum.
Hauerwas and Pinches converse with, learn from, and also critically engage powerful and explicitly non-Christian accounts of virtue and then form a specifically Christian account of certain key virtues, including obedience, hope, courage, and patience. This book will deepen the current public debate about virtue by showing how different traditions and practices yield distinctive understandings of the virtues, and by articulating the particularity of virtues informed by Christian practice.
