Through The Politics of Jesus, Yoder taught me the relevance of Jesus' nonviolent witness for my life today. I owe Yoder plenty of gratitude for shaping my ministry around nonviolence and radical hospitality. Thank goodness this book made the syllabus in Hauerwas' ethics class! I could not ask for better mentors in ministry than Hauerwas and Yoder. A must read for those considering Christian pacifism.
