Product Description

Four hundred seventy years ago the Anabaptist movement was launched with the inauguration of believer's baptism and the formation of the first congregation of the Swiss Brethren in Zurich, Switzerland. The Anabaptist Story: An Introduction to Sixteenth Century Anabaptism is a standard introduction to the history of Anabaptism by noted church historian William R. Estep.

He offers a vivid chronicle of the rise and spread of the teachings and heritage of this vigorous, important stream in Christianity. In this third edition, The Anabaptist Story has been substantially revised and enlarged to take into account the numerous Anabaptist sources that have come to liht in the last half-century as well as the significant number of monographs and other scholarly research on Anabaptist themes that have recently appeared.In interacting with these materials, Estep challenges a number of assumptions held by contemporary historians of sixteenth-century Anabaptism and offers fresh insights into the historical movement to which we owe the notion of religious liberty that prevails today. William R. Estep is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Church History at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas. His other books include Renaissance and Reformation.

Editorial Reviews

Restoration Quarterly
"A sympathetic and fair-minded account. Estep is a spiritually sensitive, careful, and thoughtful scholar. His book is the best popular synthetic treatment of sixteenth-century Anabaptist history."

Fides et Historia
"A valuable contribution to Reformation studies. . . It would be difficult to find a better volume for an introduction to sixteenth-century Anabaptism."

Southwestern Journal of Theology
"Recommended for its forceful and engaging style and for its unquestionable scholarship. Pastors, students, and scholars will be better informed in the area of Radical Reformation studies by its careful perusal."

Church History
"Accurate historically and may be used effectively for introductions by those within the believing camp of Anabaptism as well as by inquiring outsiders."
