Overview

The movement, known as Anabaptism, affords a rich field for speculation because of the fact that it came into such prominence during the Reformation period; because so many divisions, sects, and denominations either grew out of it or came through it; and because of the nature of the sources upon which we are dependent for our information. Culling a mass of historical material, Langenwalter maintains that only through the lives and writings of its early leaders can a true understanding of Anabaptism be formed.

Christ’s Headship of the Church According to the Anabaptist Leaders Whose Followers Became the Mennonites is a must-have for those interested in Reformation history.
