From the Back Cover
In this first systematic treatment of John Howard Yoder's extensive writings, Craig Carter argues that Yoder's radical social ethic, centered on pacifism, is derived from a classically orthodox Christianity.
"We are in Carter's debt for this carefully researched and thorough study of Yoder's theology and social ethics. The Politics of the Cross has set the standard for excellence for what a theological assessment of Yoder's body of work should be." -Dr. Michael G. Cartwright, University of Indianapolis
"There are no doubt going to be many books in the future published on Yoder, but this will surely be one of the best." -Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University
"A brilliant, probing analysis of one of the most important Christian theologians of the twentieth century. Yoder's central Christological argument-precisely because Jesus of Nazareth is true God he is also normative man-challenges both liberal peace and justice activists and traditional evangelicals." -Ronald J. Sider, Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Careful, irenic, and argued with intellectual vigour, Carter's study gives a coherent reading of Yoder's Christocentric moral vision which will provoke debate and renewed appreciation for its subject." -John Webster, University of Oxford
"Craig Carter has done a splendid job of analyzing and presenting the theology of John Howard Yoder. He has given us a carefully crafted systematic view of Yoder's 'conversational and occasional writings.' " -C. Norman Kraus, Professor Emeritus, Goshen College
