With the Grain of the Universe: The Church's Witness and Natural Theologyby Stanley Hauerwas
This major work by one of the world's top theologians offers a provocative and closely argued perspective on natural theology. Stanley Hauerwas shows how natural theology, divorced from a confessional doctrine of God, inevitably distorts our understanding of God's character and the world in which we live. This critically acclaimed book, winner of a Christianity Today Book Award, is now in paper. It includes a new afterword that sets the book in contemporary context and responds to critics.

This is the first of Hauerwas's books I've read. It was intellectually challenging and well-reasoned. More importantly, though, it challenged me to try to be a better, more faithful witness in the world to what our active, Creator God has done for us in Jesus of Nazereth. My only complaint is that the author's concluding charge seemed to come out of nowhere and focus not on the church--even though I agreed with his suggestions for dialogue within the university setting.
