I have a complicated view of this book, however, after knowing what John Yoder did. A lot of this book was bullshit

The Politics of Jesus was convicting. Powerful. It was, however, a little denser than I would have liked - hence 4 instead of 5 stars. I will need to re-read it sometime soon.

Many Christians have become increasingly sensitive to the destructiveness of war. They are recognizing war’s limited ability as a public policy instrument. They are acknowleding the social, economic, and spiritual consequences of preparing to wage war. These concerns have begun to revive the conscience of the church in new ways.This text contends that peacemaking is essential to Christian discipleship.

Not every Christian is a pacifist but it is hard to disagree with pacifism on moral grounds. Mostly people point to how impractical pacifism is in the face of real evil. Often people argue against pacifism by pointing to the position's so called Achilles heel, "What if some one attacked your wife/child/family/loved one?"

John Howard Yoder, the late Mennonite theologian wrote this book to answer that question. In part 1 he gives his own reasoned answer to this question. His answer illustrates the way this particular question over simplifies the issue and demands a deterministic response (i.e. violence is the only way to stop violence)In part 2 other pacifists give their answer to the question. Part 3 presents anecdotes from various sources of how the non-violent response actually worked to quell violence.

This was a very good and accessible response to the issue from an intelligent pacifist perspective. It is simple and certainly not Yoder's best or most creative work. But it certainly was good.
