Tragedy in Church History: Responding to Your Questions

Should Christians “own” all of church history? How do evil things done by those who take the name of Christ relate to us?  And switching gears, how does one become Mennonite? What if I want to be Anabaptist but there is no congregation near me? Jaran, Marlin, and Reagan discuss these questions that were posed on earlier episodes.

Listen to Allen Roth’s discussion of what to do when there is no Mennonite Church. (This episode was released on Patreon and as Partner content on our website. You can support Anabaptist Perspectives through either link for access to more bonus content.)

Here is the book by Becky McGurrin that Marlin referenced near the end. [affiliate link] Here is another book by Becky: Just Plain Becky
