About-

'Moral Memoranda from John Howard Yoder: Conversations on Law, Ethics and the Church between a Mennonite Theologian and a Hoosier Lawyer' compiles fifteen years of advice and comment on law and government in the United States from a leading theologian who was as prominent for the wisdom he offered to mainline Christians as he was a resource and teacher within his own Mennonite Church. This volume of letters, notes, and essays combines deep understanding of Professor Yoder's Anabaptist tradition with insightful, sometimes wry, observation on modern American Catholicism, and an occasionally caustic but more often open, inquiring interest in law, lawyers, and legal education.
