    Excerpts are provided by Dial-A-Book Inc. The means to the end must not violate the values that are characteristic of the end goal. One must pay close attention to the gestures of individuals and animals in his paintings to derive meaning. The list can be extended to include fetishism, moonlight orgiastic revels, adultery, exe cution of an innocent boy for murder, gang rape, assault on a preacher in church, the hor rors rats, lice, chains and lu natics of prison.

    The skill of the skipper at the helm of this novel is a marvel and a mixed blessing to observe, for the long journey he provides is a moving story without ever the upset of intellectual urgency. Margaret Fell, however, the rich woman who provides a day's rest for him in More cambe Bay, comes alive as a complex, passionate, vibrant woman. A front-facing William Penn holds a banner that proclaims peace on earth, while a hatless Elias Hicks stands to his right in profile. One has the feeling that Hauerwas is taking the room in which one stands and turning it upside down, only for you to realize that you've been standing on he ceiling the entire time: he is that convincing, and he writes with such a well-informed conviction on the values of Christ and His Kingdom. Each time Marcy telephoned, Mother called my sister's name and, when she didn't answer, said she must he sleeping.

    This basically means that we recognize the world as fallen and that we are sinners. As she learns her own power to love others, she becomes memorable and affecting. Does God in Christ call the people of God to this difficult path? I believed my sister was faking it but even I'd begun to have the sickish, panicky feeling you get when someone playing dead takes too long getting up Mother told the high school that my sister had bronchitis. A Christian ethic is fundamentally designed to operate within a Christian community, namely the Church.

No, Hauerwas' Stanley Hauerwas writes with that stubborn formal-informality that immediately signifies a serious and radical academic mind-at-work.

This is another way that Hicks' tries to convey "uniformity" or peace. The ethic of loving forgiveness is imaginable on a personal basis, and there are stories to bear it out, such as parents of a slain child eventually being able to forgive the guilty party.

The cow and the bear shall graze; their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. She sacrificed her name, her faith and her family in a single day to make a marriage of deceit with Alfonso, the passionate Christian king of Castilla and Leon. De Hartog's achievement with Margaret lies partly in his ability to capture the inter nal conflicts of piety.

Does God in Christ call the people of God to this difficult path? As Christians, we are living in the story of the God of Israel and Jesus' life, death, and resurrection.

Hicks wrote later in life that all the intrafaith dissension he The peaceable kingdom book had destroyed his hope of ever seeing established in the here and now a kingdom like the one Isaiah envisioned.

The sixth and seventh chapters are particularly replete with wisdom and theological interventions, but the book as a whole unworks so many uncritical presuppositions we assume regarding ethics, violence, and Christian morality that it would be dizzying to read too quickly.

Hicks' easel paintings were often made for family and friends, not for sale, and decorative painting remained his main source of income. In the second sec tion, the sacrificial lamb is a man who has little experience with practical affairs, yet he gives up his estate, his inheri tance, his slaves and his stand ing in Philadelphia society to make a new home in the prai ries.

Both paintings show humans and animals interacting together, and evoke a sense of community because the people are portrayed as trying to accomplish something. Calmness and peace, rather than abrupt action, characterize Hicks' compositions.

Yet how shall this idyllic estate be attained? For it is in the church that the narrative of God is lived in a way that makes the kingdom visible.

Christian ethics is concerned with who we are, not simply what we do. Yet it is here in Chapter 5 of The Peaceable Kingdom where Stanley Hauerwas teases out the implications of non-violence.
