About the Book

In Mennonites and Baptists, distinguished scholars of both religious traditions offer essays that examine parts of the continuing conversation since the sixteenth century to the present between these heirs of the Radical Reformation. The essays roam from Europe to Russia to North America.

In a world growing ever more religiously pluralistic these essays recognize those elements that permit groups to ally together with other kindred spirits seeking to build the "kingdom of God." The "Anabaptist vision," as Mennonites commonly utilize the phrase to point to the center of their tradition, or the "baptist vision" as identified by essayist James McClendon contain elements that can reinvigorate not only these two Christian communities but the larger Christian fellowship.
