Anabaptist Theology After Marpeck models engaging history and using theology to understand contemporary public concerns. Marpeck participated in theological and political debates, and was active in the life of his community. He constitutes an especially compelling thought partner for twenty-first-century Anabaptists who seek to engage our communities to advocate for the poor, advance social justice, or encourage religious reform. In a diverse set of essays written by leading and new scholars, readers can explore Marpeck's impact on his day and ours and explore one set of possibilities for connecting Christian conviction across different times.
