How do you want to die? From the Living With Death series from The Work Of The People, Stanley Hauerwas talks about dying faithful to your belief and aloneness. Music by Aaron Strumpel.


  1. The question, “How do you want to die?” is a question we normally do not actively consider. However, we have a notion about how we do not want to die. What do you think constitutes a good death?
  2. The image of the cross and the baptismal is a vivid image from Hauerwas’s tradition. Why might this image be important for Christians?
  3. The ultimate death might be aloneness. How is the Christian image of death different from the image of death for others who are not Christians?
