The Secret Of The Strength

Peter Hoover. “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you,” Christ told his followers. And a few fishermen, a tax collector, and a motley group of believers set out to change the world. In fact, they succeeded.

In 16th century Europe, the Anabaptists preaching in cities by night, on back streets, and in secret corners behind rail fences set out to do the very thing the apostles had done. They, too, turned the world of their day upside down. What was the secret of their strength? In this book, Hoover explains what gave the Anabaptists their incredible spiritual strength.

Was their secret a return to the Bible? No, they were far more than Biblicists. Was it a return to apostolic tradition? No, they were far more than keepers of tradition. Fundamentalism and traditionalism have never held Christianity together nor made it work.

The “secret of the kingdom of God” is stunningly simple. With two words Christ revealed it to His disciples. Upon comprehending it, His disciples came to a sudden knowledge of the will of God, of the whole Bible, and of the right way to live.

I read this book early on in my quest to become a First Generation Anabaptist. I have read it three times since and have gleaned much insight each time. To a point, this is the "Anabaptist" version of "Will the Real Heretics Please Stand Up", as it explains the history of the Anabaptist movement as well as its decline after the first hundred years. Peter Hoover challenges us to live out the Sermon on the Mount, however, regardless of one's cultural background. This remains one of my prized books. Every serious-minded Anabaptist friend I have shared it with wants their own copy!

I highly recommend this book to anyway, who wants to know the spirit of the Anabaptist, but most important on being a true follower of Christ!
