Search Tips

  • This search will find exact matches to the search term you enter, even if it is only a partial word (e.g., if you type "Bapti" it will return "Anabaptist," "Baptism," "Baptist," and "Baptize").

  • We linked related terms together so if you search for a term it will also bring up results for related terms (e.g., "communion" will also bring up results for “Lord’s Supper” and “Eucharist”). Any related terms that matched your inquiry will show up in parenthesis beside the relevant result. To disable this feature, uncheck the box below the search field labeled “Include Related Terms.”

  • To narrow your search results, check the box next to all relevant hits and select the “View Checked Results Only” button at the top or bottom of the search results.

  • Page ranges in bold indicate where Yoder engages the searched topic extensively.

  • When searching for authors, enter only the last name and then limit your search based on the available options. This is because some authors go by different spellings of their first and middle names.

  • The index does not include diacritical marks, so just use the corresponding english letter.

  • When searching for Bible passages, type out the entire book name and use a colon to separate the chapter from the verse (e.g., 1 Corinthians 6:1-8).
    • Because a specific Bible passage can be cited in a variety of ways (e.g., John 3:16 is also within John 3:14-17), you may want to begin with the chapter (John 3) and then narrow your search based on the results.
