In short, engaging essays, Reimer approaches the dogmas of Christian faith with humor, insight, and imagination. Here basics such as heaven, hell, prayer, and judgment are explained with historical insight and contemporary application. Anabaptist Mennonite priorities emerge but with appreciation for the church's wider historical context and tradition.
"This slim volume on dogma is written in a popular style for use with youth groups and others who are being introduced to a Mennonite understanding of Christian faith. It provides a brief, but helpful commentary on Dogma. While Reimer does not devote chapters to the Mennonite hallmarks of peace and non-violent discipleship and community, this Mennonite worldview permeates Reimer's presentation of the basics of Christian faith. The Chapter on prayer provides a helpful glimpse into Mennonite prayer rituals and habits during the last century, a list of different types of prayer in the Bible and analyses of how and why we pray. Reimer closes the chapter with this summative statement: "Prayer, above all, is the loving contemplation of God and what God is doing in the world." -- Elsie Rempel, MC Canada
