Item Description...
At the center of all John Howard Yoder's thought is the scriptural witness, and at the center of the scriptural witness is Christ, the one who "came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near" (Eph. 2:17). This collection of short, accessible studies of key biblical texts provides a wonderful point of entry into Yoder's more difficult theological writings; it can also serve as a guide for a small group Bible study on the theme of Christian peaceableness.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
from the preface by the author:  Jul 28, 2007
""the messages on the pages that follow are not argument to outsiders (neither apology nor evangelism to the Gentiles). They are addressed to persons already engaged in the Christian peace movement, as a contribution toward making more coherent their already growing conviction. Yet neither is this material catechism. It walks in a celebrative mood through the major themes of the Scriptures, without using any checklists or standard formulas to be sure nothing has been missed.... The chapters in this book might be spoken of by some as 'sermons.' They are addressed to believers, assuming the readiness of the readers or listeners to be exhorted and instructed. Yet they were not prepared or presented in a context of congregational worship. They lack some of those elements of illustration and rhetoric that normally have a place in the sermon... The genre of 'Bible lecture' has a long and worthy, if now largely forgotten, history..." These are "Bible lectures" on peace and peacemaking.
Sermons on peace by a peace theologian  Jun 18, 2002
Once again Yoder speaks to the issue of peace with utmost clarity and insight. Leaning heavily on the Bible, Yoder's book is a series of sermon-like chapters that address various aspects of the scriptures in relation to peace and the kingdom of God. This book is somewhat of a focusing-in-on the peace issue within Yoder's theology... pure, non-diluted peace theology... vintage Yoder. This book is an example of why Yoder has been my mentor in theology... and ethics.
