Reading the Anabaptist Bible is a unique day book, with one page of meditative readings set for each day of the year.

An Introduction by Arthur Paul Boers provides practical suggestions for the meditative reading of this collection.
Praise for Reading the Anabaptist Bible
“How does one use such a resource? Though valuable to scholars, the book is even more valuable to the church in offering a wide view of what mattered most to our ancestors in the faith. Their familiarity with scripture and commitment to disciplined Christian living challenge the church to faithfulness. Just as our ancestors kept these verses in their hearts, we too may be inspired to meditate on scripture and let it work its transforming way in our lives.”
- Marlene Kropf, in the Mennonite Quarterly Review
"Reading the Anabaptist Bible is a unique publication within the areas of Anabaptist history and theology, mainly because it serves as a daily guide for the spiritual disciplines. The book contains 365 readings, each containing three elements: a Bible passage, a brief explanatory text and an Anabaptist testimony reflecting on the biblical text or teaching."
