Abstract:

Before his sudden death, Yoder planned the essays and structure of The War of the Lamb, which he intended to be his last work. Now leading interpreters of Yoder bring that work to fruition. The War of the Lamb covers pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. It crystallizes Yoder's argument that his proposed ethics is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. Yoder also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible--and more specifically, that the Christian just war tradition itself presumes against all violence. --from publisher description.
