An article written by Professor Emeritus Stanley Hauerwas about aging and retirement that was published in a Yale Divinity School journal received an Award of Excellence from The Associated Church Press in its 2013 Best of the Christian Press Awards earlier this year.

The article, “How to (Not) Retire Theologically,” garnered the top award in the Theological or Scholarly Article category for all media. It was published in the fall 2013 issue of Reflections, a Yale Divinity School magazine. Each issue of the magazine aims to bring theological insight to contemporary social, political or religious questions. The theme of that particular issue was the “Test of Time: The Art of Aging.”

Hauerwas, the Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, retired from Duke Divinity School in June 2013 after joining the faculty in 1983. He previously served on the faculty at the University of Notre Dame for 13 years.

Founded in 1916, the Associated Church Press is the oldest interdenominational Christian press association in North America. Its membership includes mainline Protestant, interdenominational, evangelical, and Catholic print and electronic publications and news services, as well as individual and affiliate members.
