The Anabaptist Story was not a highly influential book for me to read. I found it a difficult book to engage in because there are so many different fragments of the Anabaptist story. The book seemed to jump from Switzerland to Germany to the Netherlands without much connection. If it were possible for Estep, I would have liked him to provide a more fluid account of the movement. Likewise, it would have been better for him to put the movement in context with the Peasants’ War and show the radical Anabaptists relation to other radicals. It was interesting, however, to see the connection between my own view of baptism and the Anabaptist view of baptism. I do appreciate Estep’s work in giving me another part of my spiritual heritage.
