At the center of all John Howard Yoder’s thought is the scriptural witness, and at the center of the scriptural witness is Christ, the one who “came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near” (Eph. 2:17). This collection of short, accessible studies of key biblical texts provides a wonderful point of entry into Yoder’s more difficult theological writings; it can also serve as a guide for a small group Bible study on the theme of Christian peaceableness.

"What is especially attractive about this collection is its homiletic style, and therefore its greater appeal to readers with little theological background than some of Yoder's more technical works." —Gayle Gerber Koontz, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary

“Here, helpfully gathered together into a single volume, is the rich harvest of John Howard Yoder's lifelong probing of scripture. This book is an invaluable resource for all of us who prayerfully wrestle with the inspired text, attempting to fathom and flesh out what it teaching concerning that multifaceted peace which reflects the God of peace incarnate in the Prince of Peace.” —Vernon Grounds, from the Foreword
