Steve, I know the piece and have it in an edited volume somewhere. Yoder's critique of Barth is in a volume called "Karl Barth and the Problem of War." Its a stinging critique. Yoder delivered something like this to Barth as his doctoral dissertation. Apparently pacifists are not as spineless as one might think!

Taryn gave me a copy of the essay which I inadvertently left at a friend's house on the Cape. As I recall the essay is called "Why the Christian Church is Not Pacifist." But I do not know where it is from.
I would like to see the essay about Yoder and Barth.
Thanks for the comment.


I would like to share this blog with you



Well said, It's actually depict a good story. This is very interesting. By the way I just want to share this blog to you.


This is more on politics and religion. This maybe help as well.

Many Thanks!

What's the Niebuhr piece you're reading? I'm guessing, since I saw you've been reading Yoder, that you know of his critique of Niebuhr and Barth re: pacifism. Reinie's brother H. Richard also once had a remarkable exchange with his brother in the Christian Century over U.S. foreign interventions. They had quite a different take on things!
