New Anabaptist group in Devon

Martin & Ros Parkes, formerly members of the Anabaptist group in Bristol, have moved to Devon. They write: 'In Bristol we were members of the Anabaptist Study group, and we really enjoyed being able to meet, eat, talk and build friendships with others who were interested in the Anabaptist tradition.

We are interested in starting something similar here in Devon, and would like to invite you to join in. We are very happy to host such a group in our home (in Ashburton) and are suggesting 4th March 2011 as a date for the first get together.

On Saturday 2 October 2010, 50+ representatives of the new Anabaptist network of communities and Anabaptist network of organisations gathered for the first of what we anticipate will be annual events. This was an opportunity for members of participating communities (churches, emerging churches, study groups, etc.) to meet each other and think about how they can encourage and resource each other. It was an opportunity also for participating organisations to bring literature and other resources and to explain how they could serve these communities.

Paul M Zehr: '1 & 2 Timothy, Titus (Believers Church Bible Commentary, Herald, 2010)

Reviewed by Lloyd Pietersen

The latest commentary in the Believers Church series follows the familiar format. For each section discussed there is a preview, outline, explanatory notes, consideration of the passage in its biblical context and finally, a short overview of the reception of the passage in the life of the church. The series is not designed to provide a scholarly, technical commentary but rather to aid ordinary church members in their Bible study.
