Item Description...
Overview
Mennonites In American Society, 1930-1970 examines way s progressive Mennonites have slowed their absorption into American culture through creating institutional systems, refining and rearticulating ideologies, building ecumenical alliances, and developing a service and missional activism. Meanwhile, the Amish have formed a creative set of adaptive strategies that permit economic integration and social isolation. Wars were common throughout 1930-1970 and posed serious challenges to these peaceable peoples. Though somewhat shaken, Mennonites and Amish were able to surmount crises to become a more visible and respected people than ever before during their more than 300 years in America. Mennonites In American Society, 1930-1970 is the fourth volume in the "Mennonite Experience in America" series. The other three books sharing the history of the first three centuries of Mennonites and Amish in America are Richard MacMaster's Land, Piety, Peoplehood; Theron Schlabach's Peace, Faith, Nation; and James Juhnke's Vision, Doctrine, War

Publishers Description
The Mennonite Experience in America Series weaves together the histories of all Mennonite and Amish groups in the United States. It offers something new in Mennonite and Amish history: an attempt to tell not only the inside story but also how one religious people, or set of peoples, has lived and developed along with the pluralism of the nation.

This volume provides a rich interpretive story of how Mennonites have preserved their identity through the 20th century.

Paul Toews examines ways progressive Mennonites have slowed their absorption into American culture through creating institutional systems, refining and rearticulating ideologies, building ecumenical alliances, and developing a service and missional activism. Meanwhile, the Amish have formed a creative set of adaptive strategies that permit economic integration and social isolation.

An in-depth look at how Mennonites and Amish were able to become a more visible and respected people than ever before during their more than 300 years in America. Volume 4.
