What does it look like to be an Anabaptist community in the modern world? And why does it matter?
A new incarnation of Anabaptism is blossoming--but not where we might expect. In the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, and other post-Christendom contexts with little historical Anabaptist presence, Christian communities are embodying novel expressions of Anabaptist faith and practice. In this companion to The Naked Anabaptist, author Stuart Murray identifies 12 common practices of such churches and communities that are shaped by an Anabaptist vision.
Murray explores how these practices--which include encouraging economic radicalism in the face of rampant consumerism, truth-telling in a "post-truth" society, accountability in an individualistic culture, peaceful activism in a world in conflict, and faithful witness in communities that no longer know much about the Christian story--might shape and grow emerging Christian communities and inspire those that seek fresh expressions as cultural changes accelerate.
The New Anabaptists provides foundational resources for followers of Jesus in many different contexts as they rise to the challenge of embodying faithful and radical discipleship in local communities.
