Peter Dula & Chris Huebner (eds.): 'The New Yoder' (Cascade Books, 2010)

Reviewed by Jeremy Thomson

This book is one of a number of essay collections published since the death of John Howard Yoder that reflect on his writings and their continuing significance for Christian theology and ethics. Indeed, several of the essays in this set have already been published in previous Yoder collections (indicated thus*), and so, if you are keeping up with work on Yoder, you may find that you have already read them before.

Most of these essays juxtapose Yoder’s thought with influential thinkers:

What was it that attracted people to become Christians? How did the Christians share their message with others? How did worship make Christianity attractive? Did the emergence of emperor Constantine I in the early fourth century change things?

John Howard Yoder – Mennonite Patience, Evangelical Witness, Catholic Convictions

by Mark Thiessen Nation (Eerdmans, 2006) reviewed by Andrew Francis

In the Forward, Stanley Hauerwas writes ‘This book will clearly make Mark Nation the scholar of record about matters Yoder’. He is right. This is the best introduction to reading Yoder on the market – apart from reading Yoder himself.
