New video reading guide for “A Case for Character”

acaseforcharacter.comJoel Biermann’s new book A Case for Character charts the map for navigating the popular field of “virtue ethics” from a genuinely Lutheran perspective. A new series of short videos unpacks the key concepts (think: teleology) and figures (think: Stanley Hauerwas) in the book for readers—particularly pastors, students, and interested lay people—who aren’t necessarily trained in the field. The videos are a perfect introduction to the book, and a perfect companion to reading it. The free videos are suitable for individuals or small group study.

The video series is available at CSLScholar.
