This post is partly written by my friend and theological iron sharpener, William Higgins. He came up with 26 distinctives of the Swiss Anabaptists of the 16th century-- the pre- precursor to modern Mennonites. I will also add my own thoughts about Mennos and Anabaptists, but Williams will be numbered.
