Synopses & Reviews
Readers will discover that it is not possible to disengage John Howard Yoder's practice of ecumenical dialogue from his vision of the church. Yoder's approach to ecumenical dialogue correlates with his conception of the faithfulness of the church. His vision of the church poses challenges for Christians of all communions because he calls both for disciplined dialogue and for faithful servanthood that renders the confession of Jesus Christ's lordship meaningful.
This collection of 17 essays on themes ecclesiological and ecumenical is intended to demonstrate the substantial unity of Yoder's work over the past four decades. Many of these essays are often cited by researchers but have been till now unobtainable. Three of these texts have never been published before. Editor Michael Cartwright has contributed a substantial introduction on the "Yoderian" project, and a select bibliography prepared by Mark Nation catalogs Yoder's writings--published and unpublished--on ecclesiology and ecumenism.
First published in 1994, Yoder challenges Christians of all communions by calling for disciplined dialogue and faithful servanthood that renders the confession of Jesus's lordship meaningful. Paperback, 412 pages.
