An Introduction to a movement that emerged in the reformation era of the sixteenth century; a movement condemned by the Church for its anti-establishment egalitarian views. 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, and demonstrates how the historic counter-cultural nature of Anabaptism brings a distinctive response to the challenges created in the failures of traditional western Christianity.
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. He is the author of "The Wind of the Spirit" - a UK Church history, and is the author of academic chapters and journal articles. He also writes poetry and hymns.
