Abstract

Nova Religio Keim attempts to include not only all of Bender’s significant activities in his biography, but a personal account of Bender’s life. In combination with the important historical information Keim presents, as well as a smattering of sociological and theological insights, this emphasis results in a work which is cumbersome in a way that may appeal to dedicated students of Mennonite history, but will daunt the broader audience a more tightly integrated, carefully edited piece might have attracted. Nonetheless, Keim’s work provides a seminal account of what was undoubtedly one of the most significant lives in the Mennonite movement of the nineteenth century.
