John Howard Yoder: The Jewish-Christian Schism Revisited. (Radical Traditions. Theology in a Postcritical Key)

  • Fritz Heinrich Georg-August-University of Göttingen (2015)


The Jewish-Christian Schism Revisited contains ten essays by the Mennonite theologian John Howard Yoder. They have been posthumously edited by the Methodist theologian and Dean for Ecumenical & Interfaith Programs at the University of Indianapolis, Michael G. Cartwright, and the Jewish philosopher and theologian Peter Ochs, Edgar Bronfman Professor of Modern Judaic Studies at the University of Virginia. Yoder’s articles are predominantly based on lectures which he gave between 1970 and 1995 at conferences or universities in the United States. The pacifist theologian had already revised the partially unpublished texts to prepare their publication, and collected them in the “Shalom Desktop Packet” before he died unexpectedly on the 30th December 1997.
