An online digital library containing nearly 250 unpublished, informally published and popular works by theologian John Howard Yoder is now available for scholars and students around the world.

A collaborative project undertaken by Goshen College’s Mennonite Historical Library, the Mennonite Church U.S.A. Historical Archives and Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS), Elkhart, Ind., the digital library is freely accessible through the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana and Indiana Memory websites, and can be viewed at tiny.cc/JohnHYoder.

The library also includes the full text of the “Concern” pamphlet series, articles written by young American Mennonite intellectuals from 1954-71.

Jamie Pitts, assistant professor of Anabaptist studies at AMBS, says the digital library “gives unparalleled access to Yoder’s unpublished and hard-to-find writings, from early essays in the Gospel Herald to later grapplings with philosophical issues.”

The John Howard Yoder Digital Library was funded by a $12,000 grant from the Indiana Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Shalom Foundation, created to distribute the royalties of Yoder’s publications, recently awarded an additional $2,000 grant to continue to build this digital library.
