Available for the first time in English, John Howard Yoder's study provides a unique perspective on Anabaptist origins. In the course of his historical investigation into the dialogues between the earliest Anabaptists and the Swiss Reformers, John Yoder uncovers the issues that would emerge fully in his later work as a theologian and ethicist. This is required reading for those who wish to understand the historical origin and evolution of John Howard Yoder's thought.


"The most important book by Yoder published in more than twenty years!" ----Mark Thiessen Nation, Associate Professor of Theology, Eastern Mennonite Seminary; Compiler, A Comprehensive Bibliography of the Writings of John Howard Yoder. "Here we see the nascent Yoder coming to birth as the stunningly incisive analyzer of the way for the church in our time, as he analyzes the debates between the Anabaptists and the Swiss Reformers in the first decade of the Reformation." ----Glen Stassen, Lewis B. Smedes Professor of Christian Ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA. I really enjoyed reading this early work by one of my favorite theologians. Yoder shows how the Anabaptist impulse is not best characterized by a set beliefs you can check off on a list of doctrines. Instead, Anabaptist, for Yoder, is rooted in an open-ended question that we must continue to struggle with... what does it mean to be faithful to the Jesus found in Scripture. ----Marco Funk
