A Mind Patient and Untamed: Assessing John Howard Yoder's Contributions to Theology, Ethics, and Peacemaking is an anthology of essays by a variety of learned authors, each dissecting of the works of John Howard Yoder, known for "The Politics of Jesus" and other writings in which he scrutinized the Bible and his own Anabaptist tradition. Yoder's astutely reasoned theological discourse, his opposition to allowing Christian doctrine to be easily reshaped by contemporary dogmas, and more are analyzed in depth; while A Mind Patient and Untamed offers some controversial interpretations, this collection is akin to Yoder himself in its emphasis on keeping one's mind open and the importance of understanding what individual authors truly have to say rather than what one's own preconditions impress upon others' words. Highly recommended for academic and church libraries, as well as anyone interested in further examination and reflection upon Yoder's works.
