The Gift Of Offensive Speech


Download Credits



Stanley Hauerwas on his gift of offensive speech.

Questions For Reflection

  1. Hauerwas does not consider himself “radical,” but he says he has been given “the ability to say what Christians should say” and this may come off as “offensive.” How can the things that should be said sometimes be offensive to others?
  2. Humor has the ability to make truth more transparent. How can humor help us to see the truth of things more clearly?
