Peter Riedemann's Hutterite Confession of Faith

from 16.50

Peter Riedemann, Translated & Edited by Dr. John J. Friesen

While in prison during 1540-42, Riedemann writes for the Lutheran ruler, Philip of Hesse. He explains the Hutterite goal of a renewed community and dispels popular misconceptions.
Riedemann creatively weaves together a fresh reading of the Bible with the classical creeds. He produces a powerful synthesis of Scripture and tradition on which to Christian community. His dynamic vision of radical and communal discipleship still challenges believers toward a greater faithfulness to the Lord and to each other.
Riedemann's Confession gives theological grounding for the Hutterite understanding of economic communalism and offers practical examples. It still guides Hutterite communities.
Here is John J Friesen's English translation of the 1565 German edition in which he offers a new history of Riedemann. Volume 9 in the Classics of the Radical Reformation series.
