I've been reading some of Yoder's works lately.
Anyone here have opinions on his work?
I seem to recall a book entitled The politics of Jesus. He was a Memmonite and great teacher of the importance of pacifism. Aside from that, I fear I don't know much more.
While Yoder does hold to a fairly high Christology I still find him too liberal in his views on the authority of scripture.
Nonetheless I have found great wisdom and insight in his writings.
Charles, I always try to take from books the best of them and overlook what I consider flaws. Even Harry Emerson Fosdick, the greatest liberal Baptist, had some good points to offer.
If I am not mistaken, he even taught at an RC seminary. If I remember correctly, he was not an easy read. One had to digest every word and phrase to understand where he was going.
