An extraordinarily useful book... a valuable text for anyone interested in the North American, twenty-first century heirs of the sixteenth century Anabaptists. -- Richard Hughes Brethren in Christ Life and Thought Its 340 amply referenced entries, bibliography and directory of groups will help scholars, students, historians, church leaders-and the just plain curious-to trace the ties that bind these characteristically private communities. Lancaster Sunday News Any spirituality collection and many a general lending library will find this a key reference for any interested in Anabaptist groups. Midwest Book Review Well written and concise... Kraybill's book is current and compact which provides a helpful and easily accessible resource in one volume. -- Conrad Stoesz Mennonite Historian This encyclopedia should be in every library that includes Mennonite materials or that has a general religion collection. Outstanding bibliography. Essential. Choice A succinct guide for journalists, students, scholars, and others... Kraybill's book is current and compact, providing helpful and easily accessible information in one volume. -- Conrad Stoesz Mennonite Brethren Herald A valuable and up to date window... offers a factual, realistic and thoughtful portrait of communities whose lives and beliefs are as hard-nosed as anyone else's... It holds its own, too, with many online sources that exist. -- Stuart Hannabuss Reference Reviews Kraybill and his life work bring us great gifts of information on Amish, Brethren, Hutterites, and Mennonites, information both scholarly and popular. The encyclopedia is another of those gifts. -- Theron F. Schlabach Mennonite Quarterly Review
