Abstract:

The End of Sacrifice brings together four decades of John Howard Yoder's published and unpublished writings on capital punishment. Through sophisticated biblical, sociological, and historical analysis Yoder demonstrates that capital punishment has always been a sacred sacrificial rite performed by religious specialists or public servants. Since the death of Jesus brought a decisive end to all sacrifices for sin, Yoder argues, Christians should proclaim its abolition."--Publisher's description.
