This short, engaging book gives a brief account of what Mennonites believe. From the beginnings of the Anabaptist (or Mennonite) movement in the 16th-century, to biblical interpretation, baptism, understandings of the church, ethics, and the complex question of denominationalism, John D. Roth provides a solid framework for on-going conversations about faithful discipleship in the Mennonite church today.

Many Mennonites are clear about avoiding the violence of war and some types of police activities. Less clear, though, is the extent to which Mennonites should participate in the coercive systems needed for safe, stable and peaceful communities. This book provides theological reflection on this and other questions of Mennonite nonviolent ethics.

At Peace and Unafraid explores principles and practices to guide Christians in living out Jesus's way of nonviolent love in societies that often do not share their convictions. Commissioned by Mennonite Central Committee, the authors ask what faithfulness to Christ means in the context of:

  • violent conflict in Colombia?
  • church congregations responding to sexual offenders?
  • the Palestinian/Israeli conflict?
  • the post-9/11 challenges to democracy in the United States and Canada?

The authors bring to these issues expertise from the disciplines of theology, ethics, the social sciences, law, social work, pastoral ministry, public office and other professions. The essays explore the multi-lingual wisdom that pacifist Christians need to live out Jesus's way of nonviolent love in societies that do not fully share their convictions.

Once called the "deformation of the Reformation," the Anabaptist tradition has come to enjoy new levels of attention and respect from leading theologians and ethicists. This book gives voice to these new perspectives. Here thirteen Protestant and Catholic scholars reflect on how their understanding of Christian faith has been shaped by their encounter with the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. Written in an engaging, autobiographical style, the essays balance commendation with incisive critique. This collection, a model of ecumenical conversation, includes essays by Richard Mouw, Nancey Murphy, Samuel Escobar, Stanley Hauerwas, James Wm. McClendon Jr., and others.
