This is a recent interview with Stanley Hauerwas, a promotional vehicle for his just published memoirs. In the video, Hauwerwas discusses his relationship with John Howard Yoder, his family background, the major problems he has with the religious right in America, and how we often go wrong in our generalized accounts of God. Hauerwas is typically wry and careful with his speech; and the fellow interviewing him has an annoying smirk, which the camera seems to love. Not the most exciting video, but there are some highlights. One of them goes like this:

When asked the question "How should one pray?" Hauerwas responds, "The same way porcupines screw: very carefully."
