When reading “Unfinished Business” by Sara Wenger Shenk (November 2013), I was dismayed to learn that John Howard Yoder’s disciplinary process was kept confidential because he “insisted” upon it. No wonder there were doubts about whether he confessed his sin or demonstrated any remorse! He controlled the process in the same way he abused his power and authority to give him access to the women he victimized. He was a brilliant theologian but also a narcissistic sexual predator. And dare I say, a hypocrite.
