Top Customer Reviews

By S. Harvester on February 10, 2003
Format: Paperback
How can we explain a 2,000-year history of a church that calls Jesus the Lord, but does not follow him in his teaching and example of absolute nonviolence? John Howard Yoder invested his lifetime in answering that question--his best-known single work is The Politics of Jesus (1973). In The Priestly Kingdom, Yoder's essays address the 1,700-year-old heresy of obeying Caesar rather than Jesus when Caesar calls Christians to war. Although out-of-print, the essays on Constantinianism and Civil Religion are must reading for those who want to develop a consistent ethic of Christian nonviolent discipleship.
