Writings by and about an early leader in Anabaptism show how the movement coalesced around questions of community, nonviolence, and religious liberty. Both admirers and critics have called Michael Sattler the most significant of the first-generation leaders of Anabaptism. This collection of documents by and about Sattler, with introductions and extensive notes, makes selected primary source material available in English for the use of students, pastors, teachers, and interested readers. It is the first volume in the Classics of the Radical Reformation, a series of Anabaptist and Free Church documents translated and annotated under the direction of the Institute of Mennonite Studies.
An excellent tool for study from the original text by students of Anabaptist thought.--John J. Kiwiet, in Church History Reading these works with Yoder's notes acquaints one with the distinctive concerns of the early Anabaptists and the issues in the formative period of Reformation dissent.--Everett Ferguson, in Restoration Quarterly Translations by Yoder are faithful to the original.--Marion Wenger, in Mennonite Quarterly Review
