Product Description

Riedemann's Confession gives theological grounding for the Hutterite understanding of economic communalism and offers practical examples of it. This Confession still guides the Hutterite communities. John J. Friesen gives a fresh translation of the 1565 German edition and offers a new history of Riedemann. While in prison during 1540-42, Riedemann writes for the Lutheran ruler, Philip of Hesse.He explains the Hutterite goal of a renewed community and dispels popular misconceptions. The Hutterites quickly accept the Confession as their own. Riedemann creatively weaves together a fresh reading of the Bible with classical creeds. He produces a powerful synthesis of Scripture and tradition on which to base Christian community. His dynamic vision of radical and communal discipleship still challenges believers toward greater faithfulness to the Lord and to each other.
