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”.



Here, finally, is a collection of John Howard Yoder’s writings for the rest of us—practical, yet as provocative as ever. Immerse yourself in selected writings and addresses—mostly unpublished—of Anabaptism’s most famous theologian,formatted and edited so new generations can grasp his radical challenge to the church.

Yoder pulls no punches as he talks about the Christian’s call to live a life that is drastically different from the pattern of this world. He raises important and practical issues that we often choose not to speak about in polite company, in case of embarrassment by our failure to take them seriously. Discover Yoder’s insistence on the narrow path of unswerving allegiance to the cross of Jesus Christ, and deep transformation by the renewing of our minds.
