Item description for A Mind Patient and Untamed: Assessing John Howard Yoder's Contributions to Theology, Ethics, and Peacemaking by Ben C. Ollenburger, Gayle Gerber Koontz & Stanley Hauerwas...
This book assesses the work of John Howard Yoder, author of The Politics of Jesus and other noted writings within which he engaged in principled, patient, nonfoundationalist, and unsystematic conversation with the Bible, his Anabaptist tradition, and such thinkers as Niebuhrs and Hauerwas. The book also places Yoder in new discussions, such as with Derrida and Said--and extends the conversation to the 16 insightful Yoder scholars writing in this volume. All of the chapters acknowledge the profound and controversial contribution Yoder has made to Christian ethics and theology.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Mind Patient and Untamed: Assessing John Howard Yoder's Contributions to Theology, Ethics, and Peacemaking?
Offers some controversial interpretations Jan 9, 2005
A Mind Patient and Untamed: Assessing John Howard Yoder's Contributions to Theology, Ethics, and Peacemaking is an anthology of essays by a variety of learned authors, each dissecting of the works of John Howard Yoder, known for "The Politics of Jesus" and other writings in which he scrutinized the Bible and his own Anabaptist tradition. Yoder's astutely reasoned theological discourse, his opposition to allowing Christian doctrine to be easily reshaped by contemporary dogmas, and more are analyzed in depth; while A Mind Patient and Untamed offers some controversial interpretations, this collection is akin to Yoder himself in its emphasis on keeping one's mind open and the importance of understanding what individual authors truly have to say rather than what one's own preconditions impress upon others' words. Highly recommended for academic and church libraries, as well as anyone interested in further examination and reflection upon Yoder's works.
