Anabaptism and Anarchy at Union Chapel, London 4 May

What is Anabaptism and what does it have to do with Anarchy?

Don't know anything about Anabaptism? Don't know anything about Anarchy? Come along and find out how the two are linked.

Lloyd K Pieterson from the Anabaptist Network will be speaking on the relevance of contemporary anarchism and how strands of Anabaptist thought can lead to an anarchist position.

The evening will include a discussion over a delicious meal cooked by The Margins Cafe, covered in the ticket price (£10 / £5).

With Dr Lloyd Pietersen, author of Reading the Bible after Christendom.

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.

John Rempel (Ed.): 'Jörg Maler’s Kunstbuch: Writings of the Pilgram Marpeck Circle' (Pandora Press, 2010)

Reviewed by Stuart Murray Williams

This English translation of the writings of various personalities in (and occasionally beyond) the circle of the German Anabaptist pastoral theologian, Pilgram Marpeck, is a truly enormous accomplishment. Well over 700 pages long, consisting of an eclectic mix of treatises, letters, poems, interludes and sayings, it is the work of no fewer than eleven translators, together with the detailed editorial work of John Rempel.
