A Mind Patient and Untamed: Assessing John Howard Yoder's Contributions to Theology, Ethics, and Peacemaking
Ben C. Ollenburger, Gayle Gerber Koontz
Cascadia Publishing House, 2004 - Religion - 356 pages
This book assesses the work of John Howard Yoder, author of The Politics of Jesus and other noted writings within which he engaged in principled, patient, nonfoundationalist, and unsystematic conversation with the Bible, his Anabaptist tradition, and such thinkers as Niebuhrs and Hauerwas. The book also places Yoder in new discussions, such as with Derrida and Said--and extends the conversation to the 16 insightful Yoder scholars writing in this volume. All of the chapters acknowledge the profound and controversial contribution Yoder has made to Christian ethics and theology.
