  John Howard Yoder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Howard Yoder (1927-1997) was a Christian theologian, ethicist, and Biblical scholar best known for his radical Christian pacifism, his mentoring of future theological giants such as Stanley Hauerwas, his loyalty to his Mennonite faith, and his 1972 masterpiece The Politics of Jesus.
After showing what he believed to be inconsistencies of Niebuhr's perspective, Yoder attempted to demonstrate by an exegesis of the Gospel of Luke and parts of Paul's letter to the Romans that, in his view, a radical Christian pacifism was the most faithful approach for the disciple of Christ.
Yoder claims that the church thus lives in the conviction that God calls Christians to imitate the way of Christ in his absolute obedience, even if it leads to their deaths, for they, too, will finally be vindicated in resurrection.

John Howard Yoder was born in Smithville, Ohio, the son of Howard Christian Yoder and Ethel Good Yoder.
Those who came to know John Howard Yoder personally were soon amazed at his extraordinarily incisive mind, his logical and critical thinking, and the breadth of his scholarship crossing boundaries of languages and disciplines.
Yoder taught us how to remain open and respectful as well as truthful and prophetic in such an ecumenical practice, as illustrated in his many dialogues with representatives of the "just-war" tradition.

 DEMOCRATIC TIME Lessons Learned from John Howard Yoder and Sheldon Wolin by Stanley Hauerwas
Coles regards Yoder's understanding of the sinfulness of the church that requires a stance of constant reformation to be an exemplification of the kind of practice required by radical democracy.
Yoder, moreover, would have no reason to object to such parallels, for as he makes clear in his essay "The Christian Case for Democracy," analogies can be drawn between the practices of the church and practices of social organizations that do not follow Jesus.
Yoder suggest, for example, that to ask a French intelligence officer in Algeria not to torture on the basis of the Geneva convention does not cease to be the gospel simply because he is addressed in terms of his present options.

 Welcome to Ethics Daily.com!
Just over 30 years ago John Howard Yoder published his stinging critique of the image of Jesus that had become widely accepted in the academy and the church.
Jesus, Yoder contends, was thoroughly political, and his politics were the politics of pacifism and radical hope in the power of God.
Near the end of his best-known work, The Politics of Jesus, Yoder engaged the words of John of Patmos: “John is…saying, not as an inscrutable paradox but as a meaningful affirmation, that the cross and not the sword, suffering and not brute power determines the meaning of history.

 Marburg Journal of Religion (December 2004) Yoder, John Howard
Yoder’s articles are predominantly based on lectures which he gave between 1970 and 1995 at conferences or universities in the United States.
Yoder’s notions are shaped by two leading paradigms: first, the essential Jewish character of Christianity from its beginning; and second, an ecclesiology which is based on the teachings of radical Protestants in the 16th Century.
Although Yoder accuses common theological and historical interpretations of reading historical events, in particular the history of early Christianity, from their institutionalized effect, and instead wants to look at the plurality of historical possibilities, his view is not as unbiased as he claims.

 Books in Review: For the Nations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Yoder is best known for his effort to reconceive the relation between Christianity and the state, and this work carries that project forward.
Yoder’s introduction acknowledges drawbacks in publishing them in one place—these include repetition, inconsistency across "chapters" placed together but written at points far apart in time or authorial thinking, the absence of a developing line of argument, and changing "voice" and assumptions as different audiences are addressed.
Yoder’s central idea, underdeveloped but striking, is that Christians must avoid what he calls the "Constantinian temptation" to speak to society from its throne, advocating instead the outsider’s stance he associates with Jeremiah.

Yoder makes the difference for folks looking directly at the langauge and actions of Christ and cutting against the grain when it comes to grounding the Numinous in their lives...
Yoder was far ahead of much of nonfoundationalist and postliberal theology in his masterful work at simply reading and interpreting the Bible (and particularly the gospels) as if its content mattered for how we understand and perform social ethics.

 Journal of Religion and Society
John Howard Yoder's critique of Niebuhr's typology was passed around for decades as an unpublished paper before finally making it to the public eye in 1996.
Yoder claimed that the Biblical concept of powers corrects Niebuhr's monolithic view of culture, because the writers understand that cultural creations such as powers can often express aspects of God's good creation, the effects of the fall, or elements of redemption.
He dismissed John Howard Yoder's argument with one-sentence claiming that Yoder's argument "is laced with more ad hominem arguments and fortified with more gratuitous footnotes than anything I ever read by scholars in the field of Christian ethics" (xxiii).

John Yoder is largely responsible for putting Mennonites on the theological map at the end of the twentieth and now at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
However difficult it was for Yoder and however inadequately the process may have been handled (from his side or the church's), nonetheless the fact that he saw the process through to the end showed his integrity, his commitment to live by principles that he had long taught.
John Umble says that "John K. Yoder was one of the most powerful, influential, and widely known bishops in the Amish Mennonite church during the last four decades of the nineteenth century."-John Umble, "The Oak Grove-Pleasant Hill Amish Mennonite Church in Wayne County, Ohio, in the Nineteenth Century [1815-1900]," MQR 31 (July 1957), 209.

In the words of Stanley Hauerwas, John Howard Yoder (1927-1997) "is probably the major theologian/ethicist of this half-century in America".
Written by scholars from within and outside of Yoder's own Mennonite community, these essays engage the most significant aspects of Yoder's thought -- from his landmark analysis of the politics of Jesus to his defense of Christian pacifism.
A fitting tribute to Yoder's work, this book will be useful to readers from a wide range of disciplines.

John Howard Yoder is professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame and formerly at the Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminaries.
A graduate of the University of Basel (D. Theol.), he has served the Mennonite denomination in both mission administration and overseas relief, as well as at Goshen Biblical Seminary, where he was professor from 1965 to 1984 and President from 1970 to 1973.
It is specifically with reference to future questions not yet named that the Jesus of John 14- 16 promised further leading and "greater works." There is no reason to exclude the ministry of theological articulation from the scope of this promise.

 Eberhard Arnold: An Introduction by John Howard Yoder   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Taking off from the similar “non-church” foundation laid by the Young Men’s Christian Association (German CVJM organized on a national level in 1883), the Student Christian Movement was able, thanks to its special social location, to avoid both antagonizing the established churches and being roped in by them.
John R. Mott (1865–1955), the worldwide ambassador of the Moody revival, which had broken into the student world at Northfield (Massachusetts) in 1886, had visited Germany’s university cities in 1898.
We remember that it was in the desperation of the late first century that the Apostle John was given visions of how God’s saving purposes for the world are not thwarted but enhanced by that setting.

Yoder's familiarity with Scripture is magisterial, and the gentle yet firm way he responds to his Catholic and Reformed critics is convincing and exciting.
Though Yoder was a Mennonite (and though I am an Episcopalian by affiliation, I am an anabaptist in my heart), his work is catholic, orthodox, and accessible to all Christians.
Yoder's death in 1997 marked the passing of the man whom I believe may well be regarded as the most important theologian of our time.

Yoder’s eschatology is displayed within an ecclesiology that centrally locates processes of negotiating communal memory as a necessary constituent of peaceable practice.
But I have claimed that Yoder’s eschatology is inseparable from his account of the place and function of memory in the church.
Yoder has addressed the question of the nuts and bolts of the process of reconciliation and moral discernment at length in the "Binding and Loosing" essay from which I have been quoting, and this is not the appropriate venue for a systematic reprisal of that text.
