Here, finally, is a collection of John Howard Yoder's writings for the rest of us-practical, yet as provocative as ever. Immerse yourself in selected writings and addresses- mostly unpublished- of Anabaptism's most famous theologian, formatted and edited so new generations can grasp his radical challenge to the church. Yoder pulls no punches as he talks about the Christian's call to live a life that is drastically different from the pattern of this world. He raises important and practical issues that we often choose not to speak about in polite company, in case of embarrassment by our failure to take them seriously. Discover Yoder's insistence on the narrow path of unswerving allegiance to the cross of Jesus Christ, and deep transformation by the renewing of our minds. First volume in the Challenge to the Church series.

What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ today? And are Christians really prepared for the answers? In Mere Discipleship, Lee Camp sets forth his vision of what it means to truly follow Christ, challenging Christians to put obedience to Jesus as Lord ahead of allegiances to all earthly authorities--be they nationalistic, political, economic, or cultural. Camp clearly lays out a sound biblical framework of what disciples believe and therefore what they should do. This substantially revised and expanded second edition updates examples, adds chapter introductions and summaries, and includes new study questions.

Real Christian Fellowship is about more than socializing with people who share common interests. True fellowship among believers breaks down walls of race, gender, ability, and social status. In this book, John Howard Yoder plums the depths of congregational life as God intended it to be. In doing so, he invites us to turn our world upside down so that we may be right side up in God's upside-down kingdom. For many believers, the practices of the Christian community have become stale. In this volume, Yoder infuses fresh air into familiar practices neither by retrieving older liturgical forms, which is trendy for some, nor by conforming to the latest cravings of the ever-changing market, which is trendy for others. Rather, Yoder plumbs the Bible to understand church practices in ways that are sure to spur readers on to a more intense search for faithfulness, fellowship, and witness. Book 3 of the Yoder For Everyone Series. 210 Pages.

Too many believers today have lost a sense of their true home in God's alternative society. "Revolutionary Christian Citizenship" is about following the Apostle Paul's call to be "ambassadors for Christ." It is about living now in light of the world to come. It is about being "exiles and strangers" whose ambition is not merely to survive but to sow seeds of God's peace. In this volume of addresses and articles-many unpublished to this point-Yoder is more accessible and practical than in some of his better-known theological works. He equips us to represent Christ faithfully to all sectors of the world in which we live. Read this book to learn how the lordship of Christ applies to every aspect of life. Learn how to wage peace in a world of war and to bridge the gap between faith and politics. Second volume in the Challenge to the Church series, a collection of John Howard Yoder's writings and addresses formatted and edited for a new generation.

The ambitious and accessible essays collected in this volume were presented by John Howard Yoder during an extensive visit to South America in 1966. Reflecting and also subverting the acknowledged "faddish" attempt to address the revolutionary nature of Christianity, these lectures provide an illuminating snapshot of Yoder's vibrant initial encounter with Latin American Christianity. In these lectures, he thematically addresses the shape of the free church, the Christian practice of peace, and the place of the church in the midst of revolution. In a manner that betrays his confidence in the eventual triumph of faithfulness, Yoder concludes that the peace-witnessing free church is, by definition, always the community that is the soul and conscience of our revolutionary age.

Is radical discipleship really possible today? With all the competing demands we face, can the church empower us to fully respond to God's call? Can the church rise far enough above the demands of institutional survival to live out a radical gospel? Intimacy and Mission invites readers into Christian communities working at answering such questions. The author offers a carefully researched yet accessible study of five religious communities--Church of the Messiah, Koinania Partners, Patchwork Central, Sojourners, and Voice of Calvary. He shows how the experience of these communities can help local congregations discern possibilities for radical discipleship. By revealing not only the strengths of intentional community but also the struggles experienced by each of the five communities, Smith has also created a fascinating human-interest narrative.

John Howard Yoder is most famous for arguing in The Politics of Jesus that a sound reading of the New Testament demonstrates the abiding relevance of Jesus to social ethics. However, it is seldom acknowledged that Yoder makes essentially the same argument with regard to the Old Testament. Throughout his extensive writings, Yoder offers a provocative interpretation of the Old Testament that culminates in the way of Jesus and establishes the ethical, ecclesiological, and historiographical continuity of the entire biblical canon. In The Politics of Yahweh, presented as a prequel to The Politics of Jesus, John C. Nugent makes Yoder's complete Old Testament interpretation accessible in one place for the first time. Nugent does not view Yoder's interpretation as flawless. Rather, Nugent moves beyond summary to offer honest critique and substantial revision. His constructive proposal, which stands in fundamental continuity with the work of Yoder, is likely to provoke thought from theologians, biblical scholars, and ethicists. Even at points where readers disagree with some of his and Yoder's interpretations, they will be challenged to explore new perspectives and rethink common assumptions concerning the diverse and often confusing issues that arise from sustained reflection on the Old Testament.

What modern church doesn't call itself a community? Yet for how many is it real? How many churches form disciples intimately connected enough to call themselves Christ's body? How many form disciples who know the relational arts that create a robust unity? How many form disciples practiced in the ways of sacrificial love? Pastor John Alexander, a thirty-year veteran of living in Christian communities, yearns for all the wonder and promise of the New Testament vision of church to come true. After struggling with Scripture in live-together church communities, he shares the Scriptural practices and wisdom that make for an authentic, sustainable, and joyful life together. For any person or church wanting to move beyond the clichŽ of community to the radical vision of the New Testament, this book is an invaluable guide

Since the earliest days of the Christian Church, those who practice Christian faith have struggled with questions of unity and discord. In response to the piling up of traditions that exclude instead of unite, many have sought to strip away constructed traditions and come together around a simple New Testament agenda. Theologian John Howard Yoder recognized the limitations of such approaches and instead advocated unity across particular traditions by way of robust and patient dialogue. Yoder's work thus exhibits an ecumenical posture that is radical in its appeal to deep Christian roots, its attention to history, and its tenacious dialogical spirit In the Spring of 2009, a group of scholars, ministers, and laypersons---most of them associated with the Stone-Campbell Movement---gathered to discuss the significance of Yoder's work. RADICAL ECUMENICITY brings together six papers from this gathering, including work by leading Yoder scholars Mark Thiessen Nation (Eastern Mennonite Seminary), Gayle Gerber Koontz (Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary), and Craig A. Carter (Tyndale University College and Seminary). The book also includes essays by two additional scholars and two of Yoder's own lesser-known essays "A thoroughly engaging collection. You'll finish these essays not only wanting to read more Yoder but also caring more passionately about the concerns to which Yoder doggedly committed his life: standing in faithful continuity with the church catholic and fostering an honest and robust ecumenism. A wonderful example of first-rate scholarship and theological reflection in service of the church."---Philip D. Kenneson, Milligan College, author of Life on the Vine: Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit in Christian Community "The authors in this volume raise important questions about the possibilities and limitations of Yoder's theological legacy. I highly recommend this book to those seeking to understand Yoder's contributions to ecclesiology, as well as the ecumenical challenges of the 21st century."---Michael G. Cartwright, dean for Ecumenical & Interfaith Programs, University of Indianapolis
