In this volume of essays John Howard Yoder projects a vision of Christian social ethics rooted in historical community and illuminated by scripture Drawing upon scriptural accounts of the early church he demonstrates the Christian community s constant need for reform and change Yoder first examines the scriptural and theoretical foundations of Christian social ethics While personally committed to the radical reformation tradition he eschews denominational categorization and addresses Christians in general The status of Christian community he argues cannot be separated from the doctrinal content of beliefs and the moral understanding of discipleship As a result the Christian s voluntary commitment to a particular community as distinct from secular society offers him valuable resources for practical moral reasoning From a historical perspective Yoder reviews the efforts of sixteenth century radical or Anabaptist reformers to return to the fundamental ethical standards of the New Testament and to disengage the community as a biblically rooted call to faith that does not imply withdrawal from the pluralistic world Rather radical commitment to Christianity strengthens and renews the authentic human interests and values of the whole society His analyses of democracy and of civil religion illustrate how Christianity must challenge and embrace the wider world, Using the text of the New Testament this engaging study critically examines the traditional portrait of Jesus as an apolitical figure and clarifies the true impact of Jesus life work and teachings on his disciples social behavior This second edition is updated and expanded, What would you do if someone attacked your grandmother wife daughter or grandfather husband son Yoder explores the pros and cons of a nonviolent response Expanded edition pages, Binding and loosing baptism eucharist multiplicity of gifts and open meeting these five New Testament practices were central in the life of the early Christian community Some of them are still echoed in the practice of the church today But the full social ethical and communal meaning of the original practices has often been covered by centuries of ritual and interpretation John Howard Yoder in his inimitably direct and discerning style uncovers the original meaning of the five practices and shows why the recovery of these practices is so important for the social economic and political witness of the church today Pages
