Description of this Book

Few theologians have done as much as John Howard Yoder to articulate the case for Christian pacifism. The eleven lectures collected in NonviolenceaA Brief History were presented in 1983 in Warsaw, Poland, and this is their first publication together.Despite their apparent diversity, the lectures trace a single trajectory: the increasing relevance of nonviolent thought and action. They argue that nonviolence aligns with the inner logic of the world and, therefore, with human social existence. A quarter century after they were delivered, Yoderas remarks seem prophetic, heartfelt, and essential.For those unfamiliar with the life and thought of John Howard Yoder, these lectures, together with their accompanying brief contextualizing summaries, provide an easily accessible introduction.
