Click here to read the introduction to The Naked Anabaptist.

In churches and kitchens and neighborhood centers across the world, communities of Jesus-followers are crafting a vision of radical service, simple living, and commitment to peace. Many are finding a home in a Christian tradition almost five centuries old: Anabaptism.

Who are the Anabaptists? What do they believe? Where did they come from? What makes them different from other Christians? And can you become an Anabaptist without leaving your own church?

Follow Stuart Murray as he peels back the layers to reveal the core convictions of Anabaptist Christianity, a way of following Jesus that challenges, disturbs, and inspires. Glimpse an alternative to nationalistic, materialistic, individualistic Christian faith. If you are seeking a community of authentic discipleship, heartfelt worship, sacrificial service, and radical peacemaking, consider this your invitation.

This new edition features:

  • Voices and stories from North America and the global church.
  • Updated and expanded definition and discussion of Christendom.
  • Updated resource section.

The Author

The Anabaptists are beginning to make more and more sense to a world that is increasingly aware of the emptiness of materialism and the ugliness of militarism. Anabaptist logic is rooted in the wisdom of the cross of Jesus. It seems the world is poised for a new Anabaptist movement, and Naked Anabaptist may well be the spark that lights the fire. —Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution

I fully share Stuart Murray’s enthusiasm for what the Christian community at large can learn from the Anabaptist way of being Christian, and I hope you’ll share my enthusiasm for this book. Please read it and encourage others to do the same! —Brian D. McLaren, author, speaker, and activist

As we who are kingdom pilgrims journey out of Egypt through the wilderness of post-Christendom Christianity, Stuart Murray invites us to dialogue with a group and a tradition that has been on this journey for almost five centuries. I’m confident that all who are on this journey will benefit tremendously from this work.—Gregory A. Boyd, author of The Myth of a Christian Nation and The Myth of a Christian Religion
