While this is not a book for everyone - it is not an easy read (college level) - the author does a great job in presenting the information and keeping the reader interested in what could otherwise be a very dry subject.
If you are researching your Mennonite roots or are just interested in learning more about the faith, this book is definitely worthwhile!!
You can appreciate the work put into this.
The author presents the information in such a way as to keep the interest of the reader in spite of the fact that it's not an easy read (definitely college level material).
While this is not a book for everyone, if you are interested in the history of the Mennonite faith or are doing family research in that area it's definitely one worth purchasing!
Its introduction of the Schleitheim Conference -- which apparently is an important aspect of Anabaptist history -- is clearly geared toward people who already know what happened at this conference. People reading a popular history or introduction should not need to surf the 'net to find out what the book is talking about.
People who looking for a thorough introduction that does not assume prior knowledge on the part of the reader should go elsewhere. This book does not meet the requirements of an introduction or popular history.

A solid history of the Mennonite faith. I give it 5 stars for myself.
However, it is a bit too scholarly for the intended audience. Read more

Not for everyone, but if this topic interests you this is the definitive source (that I am aware of.) Not a dry, academic text and very informative.Published on August 26, 2008 by Zander12
