John Howard Yoder was one of the major theologians of the late twentieth century. Before his death, he planned the essays and structure of this book, which he intended to be his last work. Now two leading interpreters of Yoder bring the work to fruition.
^^The book is divided into three sections: pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. The volume crystallizes Yoder's argument that his proposed Christian ethics was/is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. He also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible--and more specifically, that the Christian just war tradition itself presumes against all violence.
John Howard Yoder taught at the Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary (Elkhart, Indiana) and later was professor of theology and ethics at the University of Notre Dame. He is known especially for his influential book The Politics of Jesus.
