"Along with providing a bibliographic appendix, the editors frame the articles with general and regional introductions to key issues, and they offer a background in Anabaptist history and theology for readers who may be unfamiliar with these topics. The book could thus be used on its own with students, or read profitably by general readers. For specialists in the Reformation, the long debate over the situation of women in Anabaptism makes this required reading. Like all recent good work in women's history, it highlights regional and other differences, notes the difficulty of making generalizations, and pays attention to issues of voice, representation, audience, and gender ideologies. Like all good history, it recounts the stories of individuals whose lives illuminate aspects of the past about which we know too little."--Merry Wiesner-Hanks "Sixteenth Century Journal "
"Snyder and Huebert Hecht provide well-researched portraits of many Anabaptist women, based on sixteenth-century government records, court testimonies, hymns, and poems that depict the staunch convictions of women in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands....One cannot read these poignant records of intense courage and deep faith without being moved. The examples of these women should motivate believers today to a more resolute commitment to Christ."--Roy B. Zuck "Bibliotheca Sacra "
