Practicing the Politics of Jesus holds potential to be the definitive study of how John Howard Yoder's intellectual journey and social ethics came to intertwine. Through treatment of Yoder's thought that is insightful and sophisticated yet surprisingly accessible given the profundity of the issues being analyzed, Zimmerman lays out the relevance of the politics of Jesus for people committed to the power of God's transforming love. As foreword writer John Paul Lederach mentions, the book reads almost like a novel--because Zimmerman has managed skillfully to reveal how Yoder's personal and church-related narratives helped shape his theology. Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries sees Zimmerman's book as "a very helpful summary of Yoder's thought" and "a well-researched, well-written volume illuminating decades of scholarly discussion, especially in the U.S., concerning issues of war and peace."
