Personally, I would probably take issue with his (at least partial) dismissal of water baptism and its placement in his preferred order, but that's another thread entirely. So for you sprinkle or pour types on here, I'm curiou...

Re: Unconverted worshippers?

I gave the book away Edsel, but the next time I go to Rabers Bookstore in Holmes County, I will buy the book again- I had shared about this book on our former "Mennodiscuss" and I may have meant 19th century, which would be 1800-s- I can't even remember his name now, but when I get the co...

Re: What are you reading?

Later Writings of the Swiss Anabaptists, 1529-1592.

Re: The Pilgrim Church, E. Hamer Broadbent
