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”.

Las cinco prácticas del Nuevo Testamento fueron centrales en la vida de la primera comunidad cristiana. Algunas de ellas aún tienen eco en la práctica de la iglesia de hoy. Pero, a menudo, el pleno significado social, ético y comunitario de las prácticas originales ha sido cubierto por siglos de rituales e interpretación. John Howard Yoder descubre el significado original de las cinco prácticas y muestra porqué la recuperación de estas prácticas es tan importante para el testimonio social, económico y político de la iglesia de hoy.
