Richard Coombs
A readable history of the foundations of Anabaptists and Mennonites. Lots of stories of personalities. Probably for mid-range readers but good introduction to this history.
Jane
Great read! Wonderful introduction to Mennonites and Anabaptist history. Makes a great defense of their positions without "bashing" other Christian points of view.
Ike Unger
