Just started reading, but as one who has only a basic understanding of church history, I am finding the historical development of the Anabaptist tradition and theology quite fascinating. I do rather wish the book was organized a little more like a standard Systematic Theology or Biblical Theology text however for reference sake.

This is a typical theological text outlining Fingers Anabaptist theolgoy. The best part ofthe book for me was areview of early and current Anabaptist thinking on a wide range of theolgoical topics. In the end Finder comes outsounding pretty evangelical and orthodox in his thinking wiht a bit more of an emphasis on community and the social-ethical dimiension of the goaspel (which are the Anabaptist hallmarks).
