The Naked Anabaptist

Last night I finished reading The Naked Anabaptist by Stuart Murray. I had never heard much about Anabaptism before picking up this book, but I am very intrigued by what I have learned so far about the Anabaptist tradition. In the book, Murray expounds on the Seven Core Convictions of Anabaptism, as distilled by the The Anabaptist Network.
As the church loses its privileged status and moves farther to the margins of society, we would do well to learn from a tradition that has spent its entire existence on the margins. Stuart, while being honest about the imperfections, blemishes, and deficiencies of Anabaptism, makes a strong case that we can learn much from their story of what it means to be disciples of Jesus, especially in our post-Christendom context.
