Title: Pledge of Love The Anabaptist Sacramental ...
Publisher: Paternoster Press
Book Condition: New
This book investigates the sacramental theology of Balthasar Hubmaier within the formative Anabaptist movement. It seeks to demonstrate that for Hubmaier the rites of the church are forefront in the development of his theology, both during his early Catholic career and during his tenure as an Anabaptist pastor and teacher. Pledge of Love analyses Hubmaier's theological education and development from Catholicism to Anabaptism and pays particular attention to his sacramental thought. The book examines the development of Hubmaier's doctrines of Eucharist, baptism and other possible signs of sacrament, concluding with a review of Hubmaier's liturgical contributions to Anabaptist worship.Commendations ?The important topic of Hubmaier's view of the sacraments is a subject that has long been neglected amongst reformation scholars. Brian Brewer's fine study, A Pledge of Love, is a thorough treatmentâ€"a helpful, fresh and innovative introduction into a much neglected dimension of the work of Hubmaier that should be read by anyone interested in the theologies of the European reformations. Brewer's overall emphasis on the context of worship is vital to our understanding and carries with it much contemporary application.'?Michael Parsons, Commissioning Editor, Paternoster; Reformation scholar?Balthasar Hubmaier remains one of the most significant figures of the Anabaptist radical reformation movement of the 16th Century and Brian Brewer has done us all a great service by examining his reflections on the sacraments and sacramentality in the believer's church. Though Hubmaier had only a short life as an Anabaptist theologian before he was martyred, his work in building up an Anabaptist community in Mikolov, Moravia, produced important reflections on Baptism and the Eucharist, and, more importantly, worship material used in the community.Brian Brewer examines the influences on Hubmaier and then explores his sacramental theology in a way which adds significantly to our appreciation of this theologian, turned pastor, who became a martyr. Contemporary baptistic communities will find much to stimulate them in this excellent study. An important book for all students of the first Anabaptist generation and for those concerned with renewing the church today.??Keith Jones, Rector, International Baptist theological Seminary, Prague.
