Thomas Finger's book takes Anabaptist systematic theology to a new level of sophistication, in a way that engages a wider ecumenical community while remaining in sustained dialogue with the concrete history of the Anabaptist movement

Thomas Finger's book takes Anabaptist systematic theology to a new level of sophistication, in a way that engages a wider ecumenical community while remaining in sustained dialogue with the concrete history of the Anabaptist movement. The resultant conversation between historical and systematic elements is a fascinating model for how theology should be practiced-the more so in a postmodern age heedless of history. Particularly illuminating is Finger's exposition of the biblical theme of 'The Coming of the New Creation' as the organizing center for theology

In A Contemporary Anabaptist Theology, Thomas Finger first sketches today’s North Atlantic cultural context of a globalizing society in transition from modern to postmodern cultures. Is theology with its universal truths able to engage postmodernity’s affective, popular, fragmenting and pluriform sensibilities without appearing imperialistic? He believes theology must face this challenge and submits that aid may come from an unexpected source: the small, unassuming Anabaptist communions, descended from the Radical Reformation.

A Contemporary Anabaptist Theology : Biblical, Historical, Constructive. In this comprehensive volume Thomas N.

In this comprehensive volume Thomas N. Finger takes on the formidable task of making explicit the often implicit theology of the Anabaptist movement and then presenting, for the sake of the welfare of the whole contemporary Christian church, his own constructive theology. In the first part Finger tells the story of the development of Anabaptist thought, helping the reader grasp both the unifying and diverse elements in that theological tradition. In the second and third parts Finger considers in more detail the major themes essential to Anabaptist theology, first considering the historic views and then presenting his own constructive effort. Within the Anabaptist perspective Finger offers a theology that highlights the three dimensions of its salvific center: the communal, the personal and the missional. The themes taken up in the final part form what Finger identifies as the convictional framework of that center; namely, Christology, anthropology and eschatology. This book is a landmark contribution of Anabaptist theology for the whole church in biblical, historical and contemporary context.

Arrived in time and in perfect condition. It is well written and very useful for research and pleasure reading. You have my vote and I will recommend it to my friends.

If, like me, your knowledge of the Anabaptist movement is limited to knowing that some of them went crazy trying to "imminentize the eschaton" in Munster in 1534-35, you will find this work by Thomas Finger fascinating.

The Anabaptist movement began in 1525 and is generally considered the "radical wing" of the Reformation. Anabaptists rejected infant baptism and taught that their members should be rebaptized. They were called "Anabaptists" by their opponents ("ana" being Greek for "again"). The best-known Anabaptist "denomination" is the Mennonites. Other groups, such as the Brethren, have roots in the Anabaptist movement. Some were more or less conventional Protestants (with the exception of baptism and pacifism), whereas others drifted into rationalism or even tritheism. Anabaptism also has roots in late-Medieval spirituality. (Incidentally, the connection between today's Baptists and the Anabaptists is somewhat tenuous.)

Finger's work hits on the major areas of the theology and then discusses the positions that various Anabaptist thinkers and schools have taken. My only complaint is that it would have been more helpful had Finger interacted more with conservative thinkers. He generally contrasts Anabaptist theology with that of liberals or neo-liberals such as Barth, R. Niebuhr, Elizabeth Johnson and Walter Wink.

This book does have some great historical information for those who are interested, but the "ecumenical" slant of the book puts me off. There is no way you can say "Anabaptist" and "Ecumenical" in the same sentence. The Old Order Amish, Mennonite's, Hutterites, Brethren, and a few others that trace their roots back to the start of the movement are nothing like what is described in this book. I live in the middle of Ohio, so I have had a lot of contact with these groups, and have had a lot of discussions with them.

If you want some Anabaptist Theology I would suggest getting Daniel Kauffman's "Doctrines of the Bible", or the 2 smaller versions of the same book "1001 Questions and Answers on the Christian Faith" and "Bible Doctrines Briefly Stated".

J.C. Wenger's "Introduction to Theology: A Brief Introduction to the Doctrinal Content of Scripture written in the Anabaptist - Mennonite Tradition" is also a great, but heavy read, book about the Anabaptist Theology that is laid out in a Systematic way.

"A Contemporary Anabaptist Theology: Biblical, Historical, Constructive" is not a book I would recommend to anyone who wants to REALLY know about the Anabaptist ways.
