How can we resolve conflicts as Christ commanded? How can we embrace equality and share finances and possessions? Is there an alternative to both individualistic varieties of faith and versions that idolize community? John Howard Yoder presents a compelling vision for Christian fellowship rooted in who God is and what God has done. Here, finally, is a collection of Yoder's writings for the rest of us—practical, yet as engaging as ever. Yoder speaks of the Christian's call to a life that is drastically different from the pattern of this world.

These early essays and speeches from one of Anabaptism's premier theologians—most previously unpublished—are formatted and edited in a fresh presentation for Christians today.

Book Three in the Yoder for Everyone series.

Review by: Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution - May 1, 2014

“One of the greatest Christian theologians of all time made accessible to folks who don’t use words like eschatology and hermeneutics. This series is a gift to the world, and hopefully it will help us build a better one.”

Review by: C. Christopher Smith, coauthor of Slow Church and founding editor of The Englewood Review of Books - May 1, 2014

“Many years after his death, John Howard Yoder’s vision of Christian community remains timely, poignant and insightful. Real Christian Fellowship, which makes Yoder’s writings on community available to a broader audience, is an essential book as we seek to cultivate deeper and more faithful churches amidst the individualism and consumerism of our times.”

Review by: Marva Dawn, theologian, author, speaker - May 1, 2014

“This book is full of wonderful surprises—teachings by John Yoder that are quite new to us, who thought we knew his work well. Many thanks to the editors who faithfully and effectively gathered these materials together!”
