“The Activist Impulse”

Those of us who are interested in the relationship between Anabaptism and American evangelicalism should be looking forward to the publication of The Activist Impulse: Essays on the Intersection of Evangelicalism and Anabaptism (ed. Jared Burkholder and David Cranmer). As Burkholder (who I was fortunate enough to meet last year at an academic conference) recently wrote at his blogThe Activist Impulse is almost ready to go to press.

Here’s a bit about the book, courtesy of Jared:

Published by Pickwick Publications (an imprint of Wipf and Stock), the book is comprised of a collection of essays that reflects historical and theological points of discussion that have linked evangelicalism and Anabaptism and/or caused tension. Contributors include, among others, John Roth, Steve Nolt, Mark Norris and John Fea. Sara Wenger Shenk provided the afterword.

As readers of this blog know, I’m particularly interested in this topic. (In fact, my master’s thesis explores the ways in which Brethren in Christ people encountered American evangelicalism in the mid-twentieth century.) Thus, I’m anxious to see The Activist Impulse in print! Hopefully I’ll have a review to share here at The Search for Piety and Obedience.
