In the words of Stanley Hauerwas, John Howard Yoder (1927-1997) "is probably the major theologian/ethicist of this half-century in America". Written by scholars from within and outside of Yoder's own Mennonite community, these essays engage the most significant aspects of Yoder's thought -- from his landmark analysis of the politics of Jesus to his defense of Christian pacifism. A fitting tribute to Yoder's work, this book will be useful to readers from a wide range of disciplines.
