The Anabaptist Community Bible features commentary from 60 Anabaptist scholars, biblical insights from 16th-century Anabaptists, and reflection notes from nearly 600 study groups from Anabaptists around the globe. It also contains a 365-day Bible reading plan, full-color Oxford maps, and 40 original linocut-style illustrations of the biblical story. The Anabaptist Community Bible uses the Common English Bible (CEB) translation.

MennoMedia has made agreements with both CommonWord and Brethren Press for the distribution of the Anabaptist Community Bible to Canada and the Church of the Brethren, respectively. Canadians and Church of the Brethren members are encouraged to place orders through these entities.
