Nevertheless: Varieties of Religious Pacifism
NOTE: In troubling contrast to his work, we know that John Howard Yoder’s life was seriously flawed by acts of sexual violence against many women. Although his writings on nonviolence continue to be influential, we acknowledge that Yoder was, ironically and tragically, perpetuating violence, over many decades, in his private life. No reading or interpretation of Yoder can be done faithfully without understanding the extensive harmful legacy he has also left.
For more information, see Rachel Waltner Goossen’s research, published in Mennonite Quarterly Review, entitled Defanging the Beast.
This book includes a treatment of Jewish pacifism, bibliographies, an index, and three new appendixes: Speaking Truth to Power, Quaker Political Witness; The Spectrum of Nonpacifist Postures; and Nonviolent National Defense Alternatives. Yoder points out assumptions, strengths, and shortcomings of each pacifist position, and brings clarity to the many-sided conversations about peace, nonviolence, war, proliferation of arms, and power politics.
