Product Description

John Howard Yoder's biblical lectures on peacemaking offer a challenging word to Christians who too easily endorse violent means to achieve peace in the world today. In contrast, Yoder argues convincingly that Scripture calls Christians to heed the seemingly counter-intuitive logic of the cross, which offers a new perspective on the power of suffering love. It is the power of the cross which provides Christians with the hope of peace and Yoder calls Christians not only to understand this counter-cultural logic, but to enter fully into the practice of peace in the present.

Publisher's Description

At the center of all John Howard Yoder's thought is the scriptural witness, and at the center of the scriptural witness is Christ, the one who "came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near" (Eph. 2:17). This collection of short, accessible studies of key biblical texts provides a wonderful point of entry into Yoder's more difficult theological writings; it can also serve as a guide for a small group Bible study on the theme of Christian peaceableness. 148 Pages.
