Anabaptist Vision by Harold S. Bender was given as a presidential address
to the American Soceity of Church History in 1943. Published the
following year, it soon became a classic essay. The Anabaptist Vison
"forged Mennonites into a community of memory rooted in the 16th
century, a community with strong religious impulses embodied in
nonviolent service, devout discipleship, and a primary identity with
the people of God, the church" (From the biograpahy by Albert N. Keim).
