Item description for Beliefs: Mennonite Faith and Practice by John D. Roth...

Overview
Ask any person randomly on the sidewalk what they know about the Mennonites and chances are their answer will include Mormons, black clothes and buggies, or general confusion. This short, engaging book gives a brief account of what Mennonites believe. From the beginnings of the Anabaptist (or Mennonite) movement in the 16th-century, to biblical interpretation, baptism, understandings of the church, ethics, and the complex question of denominationalism, John D. Roth provides a solid framework for on-going conversations about faithful discipleship in the Mennonite church today. John Roth has written a wonderful introduction to Mennonite life and theology. With admirable candor he exposes the controverted and undecided aspects of Mennonite ecclesial practices and theology. This book will serve not only to introduce Mennonite life to Mennonites but to anyone wanting to know what makes Mennonites Mennonites.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beliefs: Mennonite Faith and Practice?

Excellent Resource!  Dec 8, 2006
Our family has just moved to a new town -- and are seriously considering joining the local Mennonite Church. Having not been associated with the denomination in the past, we asked the pastor for some reading material. He gave us this book, as well as the Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective (a Mennonite Church publication, from Herald Press) -- and between the 2 books they answered most of our questions about the current beliefs of the denomination, as well as a brief history of where they came from. Just what we needed... Extremely Helpful!
 
a great read...  Sep 25, 2006
I'm considering affialiating with the Mennonite faith, and this book is an excellent starting place. My only posible negative on this (perhaps b/c I'm ex-mormon) is that the author seems to shy away from definitive stmnts on faith/beliefs... However, I understand that Mennonites do not have a rigidly enforced dogma as the LDS church does, so that goes a ways to explain.
This is not an 'authoritative' stmnt of faith... the author describes what he sees around him as the current (2005) conditions.
 
GREAT book!!!   May 6, 2006
Whether you are Mennonite or just curious, this is a great book to read. I was raised Mennonite, but strayed away from the religion when I was a teen- it seemed so old fashioned. But after reading this book, I can say that I really am a Mennonite at heart. It clarified all my questions about where our beliefs come from.

Mennonite beliefs are very simple, straightforward, and rather admirable. This book made me proud to be a Mennonite, and I think that any believer could take something away from this book that may help clarify or strenthen their faith.

Easy, quick read.
