Praise for the Print Edition

The book is a useful tool for pastors, teachers, and for individuals who have a special interest in getting more closely in touch with the primary experiences and thinking of the sixteenth-century Anabaptists.

Festival Quarterly

There are still relatively few sixteenth-century Anabaptist materials available in the English language, though their number is increasing. This book will facilitate specific theological study of issues which might be impossible for the uninitiated reader.
