"Weaver offers a highly readable history of Anabaptist beginnings which, while providing a synthesis of the recent scholarship, also has in view the practical goal of keeping the legacy alive for adherents of the believers' church tradition today,"---Sixteenth Century Journal.

When Becoming Anabaptist appeared in 1987, it was the first major study to incorporate the new history of multiple beginnings and a diverse Anabaptism into a synthesis of meanings for the late 20th century. J. Denny Weaver's attempt was welcomed and widely acclaimed by scholars and by church leaders alike. In this second edition, Weaver provides a "masterful treatment of his beloved Anabaptist vision" (William Willimon, in the Foreword). 280 Pages.
