Description

This book argues that sixteenth-century Anabaptism showed evidence of a communal and dialogical modality of biblical interpretation and preaching in its beliefs and practices. These practices included openness to affirmation and correction, a dialogical process of communal discipline, communal consensus, collaborative biblical interpretation, informal charismatic worship, and interaction in worship and preaching.
