The Book

Anabaptism: Radical Christianity, an introduction to a movement that emerged in the Reformation era of the sixteenth century, a movement that was often condemned by the Church at large for its anti-establishment egalitarian views.

This book demonstrates why Anabaptism, a radical alternative Christianity with roots in the Reformation, can enrich the whole Church in its mission and discipleship. Today it brings its distinctive voice and practices to the many challenges created in the failures of traditional western Christianity. The historic counter-cultural nature of Anabaptism enables it to offer viable patterns of witness, discipleship and worship to enhance the life and mission of the whole twenty-first century Church. This book examines the roots of Anabaptism, outlines it six core practical beliefs, underpinned by the four key principles of vision, spirituality, community and personal activism. It also shows how Anabaptism can speak into five contemporary UK issues.

Author/s Andrew Francis grew up in the Anabaptist-oriented Churches of Christ. During a lifetime of Christian ministry, he undertook a variety of secondments, including the role of a BBC regional Religious Programmes Editor; leading a French retreat house development; and was the UK’s first Anabaptist Network Development Worker. He holds a Masters degree in Anabaptist studies and his Princeton doctorate is rooted in Mennonite theology.
