Item Description...
These essays in Christian social ethics, some previously published but most appearing in print here for the first time, are all about the way in which the church, in the midst of the world, is called to think and act on behalf of the world. As the title indicates, this affirmative stance is the opposite of the way John Howard Yoder has often been interpreted under the label of "sectarian." The church is called to serve as a prophetic model and discerning pioneer, addressing the surrounding society's concerns about power and righteousness. The examples chosen for interpretation range from the ancient Jewish experience of dispersion as mission to modern examples like Martin Luther King, Jr.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Yoder does not disappoint  Jun 27, 2004
A text from the later years of JH Yoder's life, his consistent commitment to the politics of the cross reverberate throughout this volume of essays. Yoder spends time linking Old Testament themes of peace and justice with themes evident in the early Christian church in a way consistent with that of the work of Walter Brueggeman. As such, these essays do not disappoint and deepen one's appreciation for the need to trace themes throughout all of the Bible rather than just focusing on the New Testament per se. Yoder shifts seamlessly between current day issues and scriptural texts. His words are no less relevant today than they were when they were first penned--and seem in fact to directly address our modern day issues of a post-9/11 America and world. While his works and words do not always seem penetrable at first glance(I found the first chapter particularily difficult to plow through), let the reader be encouraged to remain engaged, for there is much wisdom to be embraced within these chapters. Moreover, while many have suggested that the theology of Yoder encourages followers of Christ to disengage and seperate from the world, here is a text that stands as inspiring evidence of Yoder's driving passion to engage in public conversation about life in the world, not on the world's terms but rather in the spirit of, and for the sake of Jesus Christ.
