What books and essays have led you towards Jewish nonviolence?
*Why is a book called The Politics of Jesus in a bibliography of Jewish Nonviolence? Because John Howard Yoder argued that nonviolence was not an innovation of Jesus but a major stream in Jewish thought, that predated Jesus by centuries and that was carried forward within Judaism, after Jesus, more thoroughly and consistently than it was in Christianity. He wrote his books for Mennonites who were under the impression that the differences between Christianity and Judaisms had something to do with Jesus’s teachings on nonviolence. As so many Jews are under this same misimpression, Jews would benefit from reading Yoder too.
