Item description for Preface to Theology: Christology and Theological Method by John Howard Yoder...

Overview
Preface to Theology, initially developed as seminary course material, is key to understanding Yoder's theology and his ever central commitment to Christology. It provides an introduction to the traditional categories of systematic theology, suggesting Yoder's concern with our posture toward theological study and the importance of viewing this study as a vital, ongoing process. Preface to Theology, introduced by Stanley Hauerwas and Alex Sider, includes updated documentation of Yoder's sources. The approachable, student-friendly format makes this volume, now offically in print for the first time, ideal for both the beginning theology student and the advanced scholar. Readers in all Christian traditions will find it a penetrating introduction to theology; students of Yoder's thought will find it indispensable.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preface to Theology: Christology and Theological Method?

Hauerwas and Sider have done a great service  Oct 14, 2005
This book was for a long time unpublished and available only as a privately photocopied book. This book, which is collated from Yoder's lecture notes is an absolutely brilliant survey which explains very well how the christocentric emphasis of anabaptist theology can have impact for a host of theological topics. By far the most interesting section (which is worth the price alone) is Yoder's brilliant theological exposition of the development of the creeds. It is useful as a church history text. However, it is also a stunning theological examination on the implications of having a decidedly "Constantinian" creed as a basis for theological orthodoxy.

Definitely recommended.
