This marvelous book traces the history and teaching of the Mennonite church from its roots in New Testament Christianity through the emergence of Anabaptism in the 16th century and the settlement of Mennonites in North America to the contemporary work of Mennonites around the world. In accessible prose, the authors recount the struggles and successes of Mennonites to establish their religious traditions in an often inhospitable world and provide a balanced and humorous overview of Mennonite history.

I could hardly put this book down.
Date:March 8, 2013
This book was informative while at the same time being engaging and easy to read. The illustrations and pictures added a lot to the book.
"Through Fire and Water" gave an overview from the beginning of Christianity to the beginnings of Catholicism. It relates the birth of Anabaptism and how it grew and changed through the centuries.
It tells the story of the Mennonites in an easy to understand way. It gives enough information to keep the reader interested.
