Written in the gloom of a sixteenth-century Austrian dungeon when its author -- a noted Anabaptist writer -- was only twenty-three, Love Is like Fire serves as a striking reminder of the spirit that fired the hearts of early "heretics" during the Reformation.

A first translation, this book is an important addition to the small but growing number of primary sources on Anabaptism in English. In addition to the confession are two important supplements: "How We Should Build the House of God" and "Seven Pillars of this House".

Book Description:

A spirited confession of faith by a twenty-three-year-old persecuted Christian in a sixteenth-century Austrian dungeon.

About the Author:

Peter Riedemann (1506-1556) became an Anabaptist minister at age twenty-three, at a time when these church reformers were being drowned, beheaded, and burned at the stake by the thousand for their commitment to believers’ baptism, nonviolence, economic sharing, and the restoration of a New Testament Christianity free from state control. He was imprisoned in Austria, but escaped three years later. A prominent early leader of the Hutterites, Riedemann died at a Hutterian intentional community in Slovakia at the age of fifty, having spent a total of nine years in prison for his faith.
