This series makes available in English the primary works of major Anabaptist figures of the 16th century as well as the writings of other religious thinkers who influenced or shed light on the Anabaptist movement.

While in prison during 1540-42, Riedemann writes for the Lutheran ruler, Philip of Hesse. He creatively weaves together a fresh reading of the Bible with the classical creeds. Riedemann produces a powerful synthesis of Scripture and tradition on which to base Christian community. His dynamic vision of radical and communal discipleship still challenges believers toward a greater faithfulness to the Lord and to each other.

Riedemann's Confession gives theological grounding for the Hutterite understanding of economic communalism and offers practical examples. It still guides Hutterite communities.

Here is John J. Friesen's English translation of the 1565 German edition in which he offers a new history of Riedemann. Volume 9.
