Item Description...
John Howard Yoder went to Europe after the Second World War as a young volunteer. He worked as an aide in a children's home in Elsace, France and completed his doctorate under Karl Barth in Basel, Switzerland. Because of his incomparably clear and sharp thinking, Yoder quickly became one of the most sought after speakers on pacifism at seminars as he worked toward an Anabaptist renewal of the church. In this context, Yoder succeeded in reopening the theological debate on Christians and political responsibility with the larger church to which persecution had put an end 400 years earlier. Biblical scholar, Timothy J. Geddert has translated two of these lectures, originally given in German, as a resource to understand Yoder's invitation to begin an exploratory journey that leads to Jesus Christ's peace church.

Publishers Description
Both of the essays in this book originated in 1957. The first concerns the state in the New Testament. The second deals with following Christ as a form of political responsibility. Paperback,72 pages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Insightful Call to Faithful Politics  Jul 13, 2004
These incisive essays provide a much-needed antidote to the dominant reformed view of the state which has blinded the church to much of the evil done in the name of states. If one begins with the notion that the state is inherently good, much of their evil is justified in the eyes of the citizenry, and Jesus teaching on enemies, violence and the cross must be deemed irrelevant. Such a view, compared with the more biblical interpretation offered by Yoder, falls miserably short of what Christ calls us to do and be. Christians indeed must be political, but in a way which is faithful to Christ. John Howard Yoder shows us such a way.

For those familiar with Yoder's other works, this book might be described as "The Christian Witness to the State - Lite", though that should not be taken to mean that these essays are in any way "lite" in substance. Highly recommended.
