Once a thorough-going humanist, Grebel's early life and schooling are full of stormy sessions and very noticeable "works of the flesh."

The sum total of Grebel's life might be summed up thus by a skeptic: a few sermons, many letters, imprisonments, a few baptisms, one manuscript on baptism printed, much poverty, misunderstanding at home and rejection by his home town, less than 2 years of active ministry.
