Product Description

John Howard Yoder was one of the major theologians of the late 20th Century. He wrote faithfully and with theological depth, particularly on the ethics of non-violence and peacemaking. Before his death, Yoder planned the essays and structure of the The War of the Lamb which he intended to be his last work. Now leading interpreters of Yoder bring that work to fruition.

Covering pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory, The War of the Lamb crystallizes Yoder's argument that his proposed ethics is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. It also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible-and more specifically, that the Christian just-war theory itself presumes against all violence.

Publisher's Description

John Howard Yoder was one of the major theologians of the late twentieth century. Before his death, he planned the essays and structure of this book, which he intended to be his last work. Now two leading interpreters of Yoder bring that work to fruition.

The book is divided into three sections: pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. The volume crystallizes Yoder's argument that his proposed ethics is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. He also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible--and more specifically, that the Christian just war tradition itself presumes against all violence.
