Anabaptists Need to Learn Their History!

Once again, Chester Weaver makes the case for studying history and tells more of his personal journey of discovery.

Three streams that make up our story.

  1. Swiss Anabaptists
  2. Dutch Mennonites
  3. Hutterites

You can read about all three streams in Smith’s Story of the Mennonites 5th edition, which is unfortunately a rather pricey book. {affiliate link}

Note: a supporter over on Patreon sent this link where you can borrow a digital copy an hour at a time. Thanks Brent! A place to read “Smith’s Story of the Mennonites, Fifth Edition” online for free, but you might have to wait until no one else is reading it.

Or choose a volume with pictures and an easier price tag. Introduction to Mennonite History 3rd edition. {affiliate link}
