Rediscover the Bible, together.

The Bible has sustained Anabaptist faith for 500 years and continues to convict, encourage, and transform us as Anabaptists. The Anabaptist Community Bible invites you to explore Scripture deeply, and to discover how key Anabaptist themes are woven through both the stories of the Bible and your own life.

Expertly designed using the Common English Bible translation, the Anabaptist Community Bible will connect you more deeply to the biblical story, the Anabaptist story, and your own story. More than 7,200 marginal notes alongside the biblical text feature commentary from Anabaptist scholars, historical notes from the tradition, and the insights of nearly 600 Bible study groups. This pairing of the biblical text alongside notes and introductions commemorates the 500th anniversary of Anabaptism by modeling a community-based approach to reading Scripture, while also inviting on-going engagement with the text and calling readers to follow Jesus in word and deed. Experience a renewed engagement with Scripture as you encounter the text in conversation with a larger community of believers, expecting God’s Word to transform your life.

Accessible to Christians from all faith traditions who want to read Scripture through a Jesus-centered lens, the Anabaptist Community Bible is a unique study Bible – an invaluable resource for families, students, and teachers.
