Read full description of the books:
Regina Strahm is an innocent nineteen-year-old girl in tumultuous times. The teachings of the Anabaptists are spreading throughout Switzerland, but the state church is firm in it's attempts to suppress it's spread. Regina doesn't know what to think, and she is kept miserable by seeing Anabaptist prisoners being marched away, by the increasing silence and confusion of her father, and the weekly struggle the pastor has with choosing a passage to read to the church. She doesn't know what to think, but as time goes on her heart begins to yearn for the peace and assurance that the Anabaptists seem to have. It is after she witnesses the public execution of Felix Manz that she truly desires this new way of life for herself. Events then move quickly when she becomes re-baptized (her first baptism having been as an infant), is accused of associating with the Anabaptists, and is placed under arrest herself. Sweet Regina remains firm in her new-found faith, despite the many friends who beg her to remain true to the state church.
Not Regina started out slowly, as the writing is far from spectacular and the complete innocence of Regina was somewhat hard to believe. Her speech and manner seemed to be that of a much younger girl. Later on, however, as the tale went on and I became more drawn into the story it didn't bother me as much.
It was easy to sympathize with her confusion though. I am not a strong thinker myself, and I could easily place myself in that situation and understand that I would have been no more decided than she started out, probably less so. Fear kept her silent for so long, and that too is understandable from a human perspective, but she finally took the step of faith and proclaimed her new allegiance even if it meant imprisonment or death. The peace that she had so long searched for finally came.
It is not a brilliant book, yet it is interesting look at what it meant to truly follow Christ in 1500's and the turmoil that came of it.
