Anabaptism on the Radio

Members of the Anabaptist Association of Australia and New Zealand took part during June 2007 in a radio programme aired by ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) radio on The Anabaptist Vision. To listen to this programme or read a transcript, go to http://www.abc.net.au/rn/encounter/default.htm

Coincidentally, Vic Thiessen was also interviewed during June 2007 on the radio in the UK.

Anabaptist Residential Conference 2007

Nearly 40 people participated in a fully-booked Anabaptist Network residential conference on 26-28 May 2007 at Barnes Close, near Birmingham. Some were new to our conferences; others had been to several before.

We were delighted to welcome back from Elkhart, indiana, as guest speakers Alan and Eleanor Kreider, who spoke eight times on the theme of their forthcoming book in the 'After Christendom' series, Worship and Mission after Christendom.

For an appreciative and extensive report on this event by a newcomer, see Sabbatical Report #10: Residential Conference by Tim Chesterton.

Alternatives to Preaching

Over 50 people participated in the day conference on 14 April, co-sponsored by the Anabaptist Network, Cell Church UK and YWAM, to explore the links between preaching and contemporary culture and to investigate the potential of alternatives to monologue sermons.

Rethinking Christ and Culture: A Post-Christendom Perspective

Craig Carter: Grand Rapids: Brazos, 2006

By Stuart Murray williams

This thoughtful, challenging and accessible book makes an excellent addition to the growing literature exploring issues of faith and discipleship from the perspective of post-Christendom. Indeed, the title is explicit in its recognition of the perspective from which it is written. Craig Carter not only quotes with appreciation from Post-Christendom: Church and Mission in a Strange New World, but his book would fit very well into the Anabaptist Network’s ‘After Christendom’ series.
