10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By T. Troxell on December 17, 2011
Format: Paperback
John Nugent has provided something sorely needed: an examination of John Howard Yoder's treatment of the Old Testament. How did Yoder reconcile a commitment to nonviolence with the brutality of certain Old Testament passages? How did he square the egalitarianism he championed with the celebration of warriors and monarchs? Nugent carefully and thoughtfully assembles Yoder's reflections on these and other Old Testament matters -- scattered as they are throughout his writing -- and weaves them into a coherent narrative.

Nugent is more than a chronicler, however; he helps us understand the depth of Yoder's thinking, and expands on that thinking in light of more recent scholarship, even offering correctives in some areas. The result is a holistic look at the Old Testament consistent with the Yoderian corpus. This is a contribution not just to Yoder scholarship but to Christian ethics and biblical studies more generally. It will be of special interest to students of Christian nonviolence and those seeking to understand the politics of Jesus in broader context.

Giving me a different look at some important Scriptures, I may not agree with everything but it gives me a different look.
