"In his carefully crafted and insightful Ethics as Grammar, Brad Kallenberg portrays a dependent relation between two important thinkers.... [I]t is a surprising one. He suggests that you cannot really understand Stanley Hauerwas until you have read Ludwig Wittgenstein. Who would think of associating these two minds? Kallenberg, however, makes the case brilliantly and in the process adds much to our comprehension of both thinkers." --Pro Ecclesia

"This study of the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Stanley Hauerwas offers a much-needed contribution to contemporary theological ethics. The degree of difficulty that is involved in studying either of the subjects of this book is high enough, but to take on both is nothing less than stunning. . . Thanks to Kallenberg's excellent study, philosophical and theological understanding of these issues has been newly enriched. I predict that in the years to come Ethics as Grammar will be a central text for theological ethicists writing after Hauerwas." --Journal of Religion
