Long familiar to theologians and theology students, John Howard Yoder is increasingly recognized as one of the most significant theologians of the late-twentieth century. Hailed as a gifted proponent of Anabaptist social ethics, Yoder was also an astute and ecumenically-minded constructive theologian. His insightful theological writings emphasized the ethics of nonviolence and peacemaking.
The Select Works of John Howard Yoder brings together three significant texts illuminating Yoder’s wisdom and theological depth. Preface to Theology introduces Yoder’s theology right out of his seminary curriculum and reveals his passionate commitment to Christology. The War of the Lamb and Christian Attitudes to War, Peace, and Revolution present Yoder’s writings and theology on pacifism, violence, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. These works only became available to the public posthumously, and each text fills a theological need still present today. Students and teachers of theology, as well as those who are curious about the theology of peace and war will find these eye-opening texts highly valuable.
