Reviews - What do our customers think?
Timeless quality  Aug 19, 2006
I am growing more and more sympathetic to the Anabaptist movement, thanks in large part to this book, which I have continually come back to read as a primary reference. Simons represented the best in Anabaptist thought, matched only by Balthazar Hubmaier, the movement's other major theologian.

I would recommend Simons' Complete Writings for a simple reason. Some writers have a timeless quality about their work. Though they may have written during a time and context completely different from our own, somehow their 'voice' or message seems as contemporary and as relevant as things written in our own day. If you ever read something by Augustine, such as his confessions, you may understand what I'm talking about. Its the same with Simons. When I read him, I am not painfully aware that he wrote almost 500 years ago. Rather, I feel like I am in dialogue with a contemporary theologian. In this expansive work, the relevance of what Simons writes varies, but on the whole, the work is remarkably lucid.

At a time in history when the Christian right in America (with whom I identify at least in part) is progressively taking on a Constantinian form of Christendom (which I do not identify with), and seems to endlessly embark on belligerant crusades across the globe, Simons' message of a non-violent, communal, self-denying faith in Christ, is desperately needed.
 
The Complete Writings of Menno Simons  Oct 11, 2003
This book is awesome, informative, and historically accurate. This work gives insight into the mind of a reformation Anabaptist. Menno did not shy away from condeming the ungodliness of his day, and did so despite being a wanted criminal; accused of being a heretic by the Catholic (harlot) church. True reformation Anabaptism rests within the confines of this book. True Anabaptism and the Apostolic vision have been lost. Reading this work reveals the essence of those traditions, and calls for a complete return to "the faith once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3). If you want truth, and want it hardcore...this is your book!
 
The standard translation of Anabaptist leader's work  Jul 20, 2002
The Complete Writings of Menno Simons is the standard English translation of Menno Simons' work. Menno Simons was the 16th century Dutch Anabaptist leader from whom modern day Mennonites derive their name. Menno's work is doctrinal and theologically apologetic, as he generally was writing in defense of Mennonite thought against other Reformation era groups. This book would be one of the foundational books for Mennonite and Amish groups today, particularly those of a more conservative bent. The translator was a Reformed theologian well qualified to undertake 16th century texts; the editor, J.C. Wenger, was a long-time theologian in the Mennonite Church, and professor at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary.
 
A good book on the writings of an early Anabaptist leader.  Apr 1, 1998
This book edited by J. C. Wenger's contains a new translations of Menno Simons' writings and is worthwhile reading for those looking to understand the Anabaptist-Mennonite view of Christianity. Another book by Bro. Wenger, "Introduction to Theology", is also a good source book on Mennonites. This book is again in print.
