Love is Like Fire


A gem of early Anabaptist literature!  This book presents a translation of Riedemann’s Gmünden Confession, written from prison—probably to explain Anabaptism to the Lutheran ruler, Philip of Hesse.  This confession was written around 1530, when Riedemann was only about 24 years old.  This treasure of the early Anabaptist writings gives a picture of the love of God and the Christian life which is highly recommended for every child of God.

    Beautiful and True I cringed to see that some learned scholar wrote the foreword to this confession of faith. The life of the early Anabaptists uniformly rejected higher education, preferring to condescend to men of low estate and bear the cross of Christ, but if you cut out the introductory pages you are left with a true gem from a true saint who suffered greatly because he loved the Lord and hated the false church (Protestant/Catholic/etc.)
