Our culture tends to ignore death. At the very least, we make wild attempts to distract ourselves from it for as long as possible. As Dr. Hauerwas likes to say: “No one gets out of life alive.” So how are we, as Christians, to approach death and dying? Undoubtedly, death is a difficult topic. In a culture of jittery discontent that is constantly striving for happiness, we find ourselves with few tools to help us abide in sadness, even for a time. Living With Death with Stanley Hauerwas is an attempt to provide but one humble tool for followers of Christ to think through and move toward a healthy, God honoring view of aging and death.
