Item Description...
The author explains who Mennonites are and what they stand. He goes on to explore beliefs held in common by Christians of all denominations and highlights those stressed by Mennonites. Included is an explanation of how the 16th-century Radical Reformation group, the Anabaptists, are the spiritual ancesters of Mennonites and how what the Anabaptist taught and the persecution they experienced affects Mennonite beliefs today.

Publishers Description
Wars, murder, lawsuits, and poverty are all around us. How should Christians react? Should they swear? Take revenge? Fight in wars? Sue? Become rich? How does God's love and forgiveness work? If Christians are to show the world a new path, where do they find the wisdom and courage to do so? Can we replace fear with faith, despair with hope, and loneliness with fellowship among the people of God? Addressing such questions, this completely revised edition of What Mennonites Believe affirms central Christian truths. It also highlights the fresh and sometimes startling answers Mennonites have given, as they have tried to live for Jesus no matter what the cost. In this easy-to-read book, J.C. Wenger explains who Mennonites are. He explores beliefs held in common by Christians of all denominations and highlights those stressed by Mennonites. Included is an explanation of how the 16th-century Radical Reformation group, the Anabaptists, are the spiritual ancestors of Mennonites. 96 Pages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great introduction to Mennonite beliefs  Jan 20, 2004
In this short but fascinating book, Mennonite scholar and author Rev. John Christian Wenger (1910-95) explains who Mennonites are, and what they believe. Originally published in 1946, it was updated and republished in 1991 by Herald Press. The book is divided into four chapters that explain 1) how Mennonites and other Christians are alike, 2) what were the cause and effects of the 16th century Reformation, 3) how Mennonites are different than other Christians, and 4) what it means to be a disciple of Christ.

I found this book to be a great introduction to Mennonite beliefs; the writing was very much to the point, keeping down the length of the book without sacrificing too much detail. I liked the organization of the book, with its explanation of how Mennonites agree and disagree with other Christian sects. Overall, I found this to be a great book, one that I highly recommend to anyone interested in understanding Mennonite beliefs.

Decent Overview.  Dec 27, 2002
I thought this was a very decent overview of mennonite history and beliefs. It is by no means a detailed description of mennonite theology or current practices, but it does give a good glimpse of the basics.

If you want an introductory read, this is it. For more advanced theological resources, look elsewhere.

A Good Baseline  Jun 28, 2000
This book provides a good baseline and is written by one of the best-known writers in Mennonite circles. It gives a good overview of the basic traditional Mennonite beliefs. By reading this book and comparing the text with current beliefs and practices in the Mennonite Church and General Conference Mennonite Church, the reader can see how the church has drifted from its traditional beliefs.
