"On the Sunday of January 29, 1525, there was a great commotion in a church near Zurich, Switzerland. Just as the pastor was about to preach, a tall young man stood and asked him in a loud voice, 'What have you come to do?' 'I have come to preach the word of God,' the pastor replied calmly. 'Not you but I have been called to preach the Word!' the young man shouted back."

Reformers, self-styled prophets, teachers, preachers, and common folk come alive in this fast-paced history. Through Fire and Water offers a readable yet accurate look at Mennonites, from the 1500s to today. The book includes stories, photos, maps, and cartoons. In addition, brief essays invite reflection on such issues as church and state, world outreach, and the marks of a faithful community.

"Harry Loewen and Steven Nolt cover the main themes of Anabaptist-Mennonite history from the sixteenth century to the present. They tell this story within the broader context of the Christian church. Here is history populated by real people: biographical sketches, dramatic vignettes, insightful anecdotes, illustrates, and even cartoons enliven the drama.... This text is of interest to students in Mennonite schools, young adults, and Sunday school elective classes. It should be in the library of every Mennonite congregation." —John D. Roth, Editor, Mennonite Quarterly Review
