John Howard Yoder Reading Room


This page is designed to help make writings on and by the theologian and ethicist John Howard Yoder (1927-1997) available to those without easy access to a theological library. Most links connect you to scanned, published books and articles made available by Google Books (often 75% of content). Importantly, Google Books allows you to search within a volume and also across volumes (rather than across the entire WWW). Other articles and essays by and on Yoder scattered across the WWW are also collected in this Reading Room.
NB: For bibliographic management and notetaking while reading, Zotero is highly recommended ("a free, easy-to-use Mozilla Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources"). For page snapshots and printing of Google Book pages, try Microsoft's snipping tool (paste text into Word -- or Zotero).                              -Dr. Arnold Neufeldt-Fast

"... TRUE EVANGELICAL FAITH cannot lie dormant
it clothes the naked
it feeds the hungry
it comforts the sorrowful
it shelters the destitute
it serves those that harm it
it binds up that which is wounded
it has become all things to all people"
-Menno Simons, 1539
