The majority of Amish and conservative Mennonites are certain concerning church and lifestyle practices, but are content to avoid diving into most deep, biblical topics. That lack made compiling this book a bit of a challenge, so we drew heavily from The Dordrecht Confession of Faith and information provided by Anabaptist scholars of today to make sure we accurately portray what the majority of plain people believe.
Each chapter focuses on one important biblical topic and is essentially an Amish and Mennonite systematic theology study. In addition, each section includes a closer look at what the Bible teaches about each topic. That biblical context makes this an informative resource for those who wish to know more about the plain people and a helpful book for Anabaptists who wish to better understand what they themselves are being taught and believe.
This study defines:
- Who is God the Father?
- Who is Jesus Christ?
- Who is the Holy Spirit?
- What is the Bible?
- What and Who is the Church?
- What are Angels, Demons, and Satan?
- What is Humanity and Who are Men and Women?
- What Happens at the End?
