John Howard Yoder (1927-1997), a Mennonite theologian, was one of the most passionate, eloquent, and effective exponents of Christian nonviolence in the late twentieth century. Drawing on his Anabaptist roots, Yoder went beyond a one-dimensional pacifism to address the ecclesial and cosmic significance of peace and reconciliation. In his best-known work, the classic The Politics of Jesus, he addressed the radical vision of Jesus and set this as the pattern for Christian discipleship, a pattern that extends to all aspects of life. This anthology of his spiritual writings is an essential handbook of modern discipleship.
