While most Christians are familiar with the events and major participants of the Reformation, many still don’t know very much about the Anabaptists—a sect of breakaway Christians who rejected the Roman Catholic Church and the idea of state churches altogether. Holding to principles of nonviolence, renunciation of the oath (based principally on Matthew 5:34–37 and James 5:12), and believer’s baptism, the Anabaptists were persecuted for their beliefs by Catholics and Protestants. Among the various leaders of this pious group, Menno Simons became so influential that other Anabaptist leaders started referring to his Dutch followers as Mennonites.
Over the course of time, historians have pored over the writings of this much maligned and misrepresented group of Christians. The Classic Anabaptist and Mennonite History Collection (19 vols.) brings together some of the best classical scholarship on their history and theology. It contains several works on the origins of Anabaptism, scholarly accounts of the Münster Rebellion, biographical accounts of important Anabaptist leaders and martyrs, several works detailing their unique contribution to American history as early pioneers, and much more. The Classic Anabaptist and Mennonite History Collection (19 vols.) is indispensible for understanding the roots of Anabaptist history and doctrine.
Containing the writings of early Anabaptists like Menno Simons and Balthasar Hübmaier, as well as works from twentieth-century Mennonite scholars like Daniel Kauffman and J. S. Hartzler, the Classic Anabaptist and Mennonite History Collection (19 vols.) is a must-have for those interested in Reformation history.
