The Heart of Anabaptism

The 2015-16 webinars organized by the Centre for Anabaptist Studies will explore the 7 core convictions of the UK Anabaptist Network. These summarise the heart of Anabaptism and its contemporary significance. They are also at the heart of the book The Naked Anabaptist.

We have invited 7 people from different contexts (the UK, South Africa, Australia and North America) to reflect on these convictions, critique them and ask how they work out in practice.

'Anabaptists, the Bible and Discipleship'

You are invited to the second annual lecture organised by the Centre for Anabaptist Studies at Bristol Baptist College.

The presentation will focus on the central identity marker of Anabaptists – Nachfolge or discipleship; it will explore how the Anabaptist commitment to discipleship can illuminate our present understanding and practice of Christian spirituality.

The speaker will be Dr Toivo Pilli, course leader in Baptist and Anabaptist Studies at the International Baptist Theological Seminary in Amsterdam.
