Handmaiden of the Lamb

Handmaiden-of-the-Lamb.jpg
Through worldliness, spiritual pride, doubts, depression, and an extremely embarrassing failure of her church, God led a simple Moravian shepherdess into a leading position in one of the most ambitious, mission-minded movements of church history, The Renewed Moravian Brethren.

Anna Nitschmann's story is unique, yet so common. Follow her life, as she travels through a great revival, backslides, is restored, and passes through the trying times of spiritual adolescence and marriage proposals. later in life, she travels to America and takes a trip into unexplored Indian territory.

This story is compiled from many sources, but some of it is taken from her autobiography, almost forgotten under the piles of history books.

Handmaiden of the Lamb
Interesting, but not for me

Anna's life was obviously devoted to the Lord, and the Moravian church was very missions minded, but this book falls flat by the description of the way the Moravians lived. They lived a communal life style, which is not a Biblical way to live. God established families, and the Moravians did not follow that pattern at all. Children were taken away from their parents at an early age "for the good of the whole." To me, this smacks of communism, not Biblical family-centered life. True, the Bible says that the early Christians had all things in common, but this does not mean that they abandoned a God-ordained institution.
