Patterson, James A. “Anabaptist Kinship Revisited: Implications for Baptist Origins and Identity.” Pages 31-44 in Reformation 500: How the Greatest Revival since Pentecost Continues to Shape the World Today. Edited by Ray Van Neste and J. Michael Garrett. Nashville: B&H, 2017.

Description:
A critical examination of Anabaptist kinship as an explanation of Baptist origins, with particular attention to the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary project to celebrate the Radical Reformation. Caution is needed in tying the Anabaptists too closely to Baptists, and reasons are given for why the Anabaptist kinship theory is problematic in trying to account for Baptist origins and identity.
