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.

How seriously are Christians applying these "just-war" questions to wars in our time?
  • Is the authority waging the war legitimate?
  • Is the goal a just cause?
  • Is the ultimate intention to reach peace?
  • Is war the last resort?
  • Is the motivation hatred or revenge?
This book will help you better understand Christian attitudes toward war and develop an informed and responsible approach to international conflicts today. Study guide included.
