Andreas Ehrenpreis and Hutterite: Faith & Practice (Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History) Harrison, Wes
This is a ground-breaking study of Andreas Ehrenpreis, leading 17th century bishop and "second founder" of the Hutterites. Wes Harrison's study makes it clear that Ehrenpreis' importance goes far beyond insuring survival for the Hutterites. By reiterating, restating, and rebuilding Hutterites' beliefs, core communitarianism, and patterns of authority, Ehrenpreis set the course of Hutterite history ever since.
