The 170 letters and documents in this volume portray how Conrad Grebel, a bright young Swiss patriot, became a fervent, influential leader of the sixteenth-century Anabaptist movement. The editor calls the book "a drama with five acts, prologue, and epilogue," with a cast of 107 characters. The main characters are Grebel himself and Huldrych Zwingli, the vicar at the Grossmünster in Zurich. The climax of the drama comes in January 1525 when Grebel performs the first rebaptisms, signaling the founding of a new church and the rejection of the Anabaptists by Zwingli. "These letters and documents are not published for scholars only," states the editor, "but for all seekers and believers." This is the fourth volume in the Classics of the Radical Reformation, a series of Anabaptist and Free Church documents translated and annotated under the direction of the Institute of Mennonite Studies. 816 Pages.

About the Author:

Leland Harder was a pastor, seminary professor, and sociologist, who combined all of these areas to make significant contributions to the church during his lifetime ministry. From 1958-1983 he taught at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Indiana in the area of practical theology and he directed field education.

In the 1970s Harder and J. Howard Kauffman conducted sociological research of Mennonite church members and published the findings in the book Anabaptists Four Centuries Later: A Profile of Five Mennonite and Brethren in Christ Denominations. Other books that Harder wrote or edited include Sources of Swiss Anabaptism, The Pastor-People Partnership: The Call and Recall of Pastors from a Believers' Church Perspective, Nurturing Faith, and The Concept of Discipleship in Christian Education. Harder died in 2013 at the age of 86.
