Shelves: anabaptist
As a Mennonite, its often easy to lose sight of the real lives of the early Anabaptists and Klassen does a good job of giving us a readable and detailed window in Pilgram Marpeck's life from a high paid engineer with ties to Royalty to a hard-pressed dissident intellectual on the run.
