$40.00 John Herr (1782-1850) founder of the Reformed Mennonite Church (1812). "Herr, a man of considerable gifts, became a vigorous leader of the new group. His attacks upon the old church from which his family and most if not all the members of his group had descended were vigorous and even bitter. He accused it of being spiritually dead and corrupt, and having departed from the teachings of Menno Simons, of having no real discipline... He traveled much, especially to Western New York and Ontario, where congregations of his group were established."--Mennonite Ency.. II:712. We offer the first edition of his treatise on the Sermon on the Mount.
