The Christian woman’s head covering is a defining doctrine of the conservative Anabaptist churches. Some groups have remained consistent in their application from one generation to the next. Others, including many Mennonite and Amish Mennonite groups, have changed styles, often allowing the covering to become smaller, more transparent, or more stylish. The opening chapters provide basic doctrinal teaching defending the reasons it should be practiced. For those who already understand the doctrine and have strong conviction, the bulk of the book explores the symbolic meaning behind the different covering styles and probes the underlying motives behind style changes. Readers will find their convictions strengthened as they sincerely examine their own motives and understand the historical significance of the traditional Anabaptist covering.
