Publishers Description
In this comprehensive volume Thomas N. Finger takes on the formidable task of making explicit the often implicit theology of the Anabaptist movement and then presenting, for the sake of the welfare of the whole contemporary Christian church, his own constructive theology. In the first part Finger tells the story of the development of Anabaptist thought, helping the reader grasp both the unifying and diverse elements in that theological tradition. In the second and third parts Finger considers in more detail the major themes essential to Anabaptist theology, first considering the historic views and then presenting his own constructive effort. Within the Anabaptist perspective Finger offers a theology that highlights the three dimensions of its salvific center: the communal, the personal and the missional. The themes taken up in the final part form what Finger identifies as the convictional framework of that center; namely, Christology, anthropology and eschatology. This book is a landmark contribution of Anabaptist theology for the whole church in biblical, historical and contemporary context.

A Very Good Reference book  May 3, 2005
I purchased this book as a reference to aid aid my newly discovered interest in anabaptism. I have not been disappointed. The theology is a little too mainstream/conservative for my liking but this book's great strength is its emphasis on historical context. Throughout the text Finger emphasises the historical context of anabaptist theology and, in particular, incorporates the often forgotten non-Swiss strands of anabaptism. I believe this is the great strength of this book and reminded me somewhat of the style of Pannenberg's Systematic Theology with its reliance of historical theology to fashion contemporary theology. Overall, if you have an interest in anabaptism in the modern world then this is an excellent resource, not necessarily for the content but its encompassing survey of contemporary anabaptist theologies. Definitely recommended.
 
Fascinating  Jan 9, 2005
If, like me, your knowledge of the Anabaptist movement is limited to knowing that some of them went crazy trying to "imminentize the eschaton" in Munster in 1534-35, you will find this work by Thomas Finger fascinating.

The Anabaptist movement began in 1525 and is generally considered the "radical wing" of the Reformation. Anabaptists rejected infant baptism and taught that their members should be rebaptized. They were called "Anabaptists" by their opponents ("ana" being Greek for "again"). The best-known Anabaptist "denomination" is the Mennonites. Other groups, such as the Brethren, have roots in the Anabaptist movement. Some were more or less conventional Protestants (with the exception of baptism and pacifism), whereas others drifted into rationalism or even tritheism. Anabaptism also has roots in late-Medieval spirituality. (Incidentally, the connection between today's Baptists and the Anabaptists is somewhat tenuous.)

Finger's work hits on the major areas of the theology and then discusses the positions that various Anabaptist thinkers and schools have taken. My only complaint is that it would have been more helpful had Finger interacted more with conservative thinkers. He generally contrasts Anabaptist theology with that of liberals or neo-liberals such as Barth, R. Niebuhr, Elizabeth Johnson and Walter Wink.
