The Naked Anabaptist

   

Mennonite Church Canada/Mennonite Publishing Network joint release
For immediate release
October 15, 2010

WATERLOO, Ont. and SCOTTDALE, Pa. — With over 4,700 sold, The Naked Anabaptist: The Bare Essentials of a Radical Faith, is a runaway best-seller for Herald Press, the book imprint of Mennonite Publishing Network (MPN).

“We knew the book would resonate with many people, but we didn’t expect it to sell out so quickly,” says Ron Rempel, Executive Director of MPN.

Especially satisfying for Rempel is seeing the book going out in bunches of ten to 20 copies or more to churches for use by Christian education classes and study groups.

“We hoped it would be used by congregations as a way to discuss what it means to be an Anabaptist today,” he says. “It’s great to see so many churches using it.”

Five thousand copies of The Naked Anabaptist, by Stuart Murray, were published in April. A second run of 5,000 copies has been ordered.

The Naked Anabaptist: The Bare Essentials of a Radical Faith, is available from Mennonite Publishing Network at www.mpn.net/nakedanabaptist. Price: $16.99CAD/$13.99 USD. Churches that order five copies or more can buy it for 25 percent off through the MPN Study Shelf; go to www.faithandliferesources.org/Studyshelf/ for more information.

Herald Press is the book imprint of Mennonite Publishing Network, the publishing ministry of Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Church USA.
