Stanley Hauerwas wrote in his review of “Christian Ethics and Contemporary Moral Problems”
‘Michael Banner is an event waiting to happen. He is clearly one of the brightest and most interesting young people doing ethics on the scene today. He is a first-rate theologian who promises to be a new and long-standing voice not only in England but in America. This is a good book and one that I believe will be widely read.’ Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University

Professor Sachiko Kusukawa brought us best wishes from Trinity, and words of greeting from Professor Michael Banner, Dean of Chapel and Fellow for Development of Trinity.
