This publication argues that for John Howard Yoder either theology (in specific Christology) and ethics are expressions of the which means of the narrative of Jesus. All such statements are relative to a selected context, this means that theology and ethics are constantly topic to attaining again to the narrative with the intention to restate the that means in new and ever-changing contexts. this system is seen in Yoder's Preface to Theology, which has been little utilized in so much remedies of Yoder's notion. Yoder has been characterised as status on Nicene orthodoxy, criticized for rejecting Nicene orthodoxy, referred to as heterodox, and distinct a postmodern philosopher to be interpreted when it comes to different such thinkers. None of those characterizations competently locates the root of his method within the narrative of Jesus. therefore John Howard Yoder: Radical Theologian goals to head past or to supersede latest remedies with its demonstration that Yoder is a thorough theologian within the old which means of radical--that is, as person who returns to the basis. For Christian religion, this root is Jesus Christ. components II and III of the publication discover the assets of Yoder's method, and its software in different modern contexts.

"I have wept with one sexually assaulted by way of Yoder, and her tale usually blocks me from analyzing him. but he merits to be learn; extra to the purpose, Weaver's research of Yoderian theology begs to be learn. This ebook forthrightly addresses Yoder's abhorrent activities, liberating me not to basically have interaction yet finally embody Weaver's compelling case for a Yoderian theology repeatedly rooted within the Jesus of the recent Testament."
--Megan M. Ramer, pastor, Chicago neighborhood Mennonite Church, Chicago, IL

"Numerous considerate, reflective younger Christians have gotten enamored with Yoder--something giving upward push to many various interpretations of his suggestion. Weaver and his co-authors supply another method of many others. For them, Yoder's complete lifework is rooted within the narrative of the lifestyles and ministry of Jesus and hence in Christology. in the event that they are right, Yoder can in basic terms rightly be understood as 'radical,' this means that 'back to the roots' of Christianity within the guy Jesus. I hugely suggest this quantity to every person drawn to Yoder and the more and more vigorous dialog approximately his theology."
--Roger E. Olson, Foy Valentine Professor of Christian Theology and Ethics, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor collage, Waco, TX

"From one of the spate of modern books parsing John H. Yoder's concept, this is often the only i would like inside arm's achieve. inside one quantity, Weaver and his co-authors have the capacity to articulate the assets for Yoder's radical theology. . . . The authors aren't dabblers in Yoder's suggestion, yet those that knew him extra in detail than such a lot students and people whose lives have been altered through their touch with John and his writings. but this is often no hagiography; it truly is written by means of people with a profound wisdom of either Yoder the bright theologian and Yoder the unsuitable human being."
--Keith Graber Miller, Professor of Bible, faith, & Philosophy, Goshen collage, Goshen, IN
