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”.

In a world where many believers have lost a sense of their true home in God's alternative society, Revolutionary Christian Citizenship addresses the difficulties of being both a follower of Jesus and a citizen of a political nation. Down-to-earth and original, theologian John Howard Yoder challenges traditional understanding of politics and reconsiders Christian citizenship in three parts: the witness of Jesus, the witness of the church, and witness in action.

More accessible and practical than most of Yoder's works, Revolutionary Christian Citizenship bridges the gap between faith and politics, equipping us to faithfully represent Christ in society and wage peace in a world of war.
