9780836199833: The Naked Anabaptist: The Bare Essentials of a Radical Faith, Fifth Anniversary Edition

Anabaptist Christians have been around for almost 500 years. But what does Anabaptism look like when not clothed in Mennonite or Amish traditions? Writing from Great Britain, Stuart Murray peels back the layers to reveal the core components of Anabaptism and what they mean for faith in his context and ours. It's a way of following Jesus that challenges, disturbs, and inspires us, summoning us to wholehearted discipleship and worship. Read this book, and catch a vision for living a life of radical faith!

From the Back Cover:

There's a movement afoot . . .

In churches and kitchens and neighborhood centers across the world, communities of Jesus-followers are crafting a commitment to peace and a vision of radical service. Disillusioned with churches wedded to wealth and conquest, many are finding a home in a Christian tradition almost five centuries old: Anabaptism.

But who are the Anabaptists? What do they believe? What makes them different from other Christians? And can you become an Anabaptist without leaving your own church? Follow Stuart Murray as he peels back the layers to reveal the core convictions of Anabaptist Christianity. Glimpse an alternative to the nationalism and materialism embedded in contemporary Christianity. With new stories from young Anabaptists and expanded reflections on the loss of Christian influence in wider culture, the fifth anniversary edition of The Naked Anabaptist will strengthen readers' allegiance to the way of Jesus that disturbs and inspires.

If you seek a community of authentic discipleship and heartfelt worship, of simple living and radical peacemaking, consider this your invitation.
