The Character of Virtue -

Letters to a Godson
$21.99
Product Description

Winsome wisdom from a renowned theologian on growing spiritually

From the fairy godmother's pumpkin coach to Herr Drossel-meyer's nutcracker, godparents have long been associated with good gifts. In The Character of Virtue theologian and ethicist Stanley Hauerwas offers his real-life godson something far more precious than toys or trinkets--the gift of hard-won wisdom on life and the process of maturing.

In each of fourteen letters--sent on the occasion of Laurence Wells's baptism and every year thereafter--Hauerwas contem-plates a specific virtue and its meaning for a child growing year by year in the Christian faith. Writing on kindness, courage, humility, joy, and more, Hauerwas distills centuries of religious thinking and decades of self-reflection into heartfelt personal epistles packed with warmth, wit, and grace.

An introduction by Samuel Wells--Laurence's father and Hauer-was's friend--tells the story behind these letters and offers sage insight into what a godparent is and can be.
