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, he writes in measured, scholarly, orderly fashion. With Denny Weaver as your guide, I am sure that you will find it a great joy to walk through the adventure called Anabaptism." William H. Willimon in the Foreword

From the Author:

A second, revised, and expanded edition of Becoming Anabaptist is evidence that the first edition has garnered a certain amount of respect. A second, revised edition also indicates that the useful life of the first edition has ended. Conversations with colleagues who have used the book, whether in classroom teaching or in congregational settings, revealed significant interest in a new edition. I am grateful that Herald Press staff agreed with that assessment, and it has been a pleasure to work with Levi Miller in producing this edition.

The two editions of this book stand as bookends to my career. The first edition was my first book and came relatively early in my professional career. The second edition comes quite near the end of my teaching career. Much has happened in between. On the side of Anabaptist scholarship, there were a number of revisions and additions to the "polygenesis" school of thought, which shaped the first edition. The current edition has incorporated much from those efforts to go "beyond" polygenesis. The effort to move beyond polygenesis has also provoked a new debate about the significance and meaning of Anabaptism. I have not pursued that debate in the five chapters of the book, but interested readers may engage it in the interpretive essay in the appendix.

From the Inside Flap:

" J. Denny 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." The Sixteenth Century Journal
