Overview

This path-breaking work assembles all the pieces of the Anabaptist puzzle in the United States for the first time. Anchored on a database of 5,400 congregations, it provides an authoritative overview of more than sixty Amish, Brethren, Hutterite, and mennonite groups. Lively interpretative essays, helpful graphics, photographs, group profiles, state-by-state summaries, and the first-ever comprehensive directory of all Anabaptist congregations make this a standard turn-of-the century reference. Kraybill and Hostetter trace the origins of the Anabaptist Movement and relationships between Anabaptist groups. They describe common convictions as well as the colorful diversity. This guide to the puzzles of the Anabaptist World will assist scholars, leaders, and members of the described communities as well as outsiders who want an accessible introduction to the Anabaptist World in the United States.
