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 is an invaluable resource for all of us who prayerfully wrestle with the inspired text, attempting to fathom and flesh out what it teaches concerning that multifaceted peace which reflects the God of peace incarnate in the Prince of Peace."
--Vernon Grounds

Also available in Spanish.

"What is especially attractive about this collection is its homiletic style, and therefore its greater appeal to readers with little theological background than some of Yoder's more technical works."-- Gayle Gerber Koontz
