Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good history, could have more about modern movements  Nov 22, 2005
I uncovered this book while searching for information about Amish and Mennonite cultures. I found it to be a very good history of the Anabaptist movement with very good information about the schisms between Anabaptists and other reformation movements. It also had valuable material relating to the divergence of Jacob Amman and the Amish from the larger Mennonite community.

What was lacking for me was information about the modern orders within the Mennonite church. How do modern Mennonite orders differ from the Amish in customs and beliefs? How do Old Order Mennonites differ from the Amish and other Mennonite sects? How many Mennonite sects are there today? How did they come to diverge? How come some Mennonites wear conservative clothing and drive cars, yet some Mennonites are indistiquishable from other "contemporary Americans"? Are there regional patterns to these divisions?

Some of these may seem like naive questions, but as a non-Mennonite trying to learn about the culture, I found myself wanting more of this information.

Overall, however, the book is a great history. The illustrations are over-caricatured and overdone, and the silly drawing on the pink book jacket is not going to help sell any copies -- but these are minor complaints.
 
Excellent Overview  Aug 27, 2005
We felt this book would be a good read for someone who is converting from the Muslim faith to Christianity and is also looking for a church home in the Mennonite tradition. We have found the book to be a very valuable tool for this purpose.
 
Very Good  Apr 3, 2005
Though Mennonites and Old Order Amish lived in the countryside around where I grew up, I knew only about their practices and some of their beliefs. Their history was largely a mystery to me. Reading this book gave me a taste of the persecution they have suffered around the world for their commitment to peace and non-resistance. This text is remarkably well-written and even entertaining at points. Perhaps good for high school juniors and seniors, adults will also appreciate this straightforward introduction to Anabaptist history.
 
Good Beginning, Lacking End  May 5, 2004
The book is an easy read, informative, and comprehensive. The strongest point of the book is the beginning up through the 1800s. However the 20th century is desperately lacking. The authors seemed as if they did not want to touch on the conservative movement starting at the beginning of the 20th century and continuing until now. This was an essential part of Mennonite history in North America whether the reader has sympathies for the movement or not. The authors ignored this for one reason or another leaving readers who are familiar with plain Mennonites moreso than main-stream Mennonites with more questions than when they first picked up the book.

I'd recommend Stephen Scott's An Introduction to Old Order and Conservative Mennonite Groups as a beginnier's guide to filling in the gaps this book made in Mennonite history.

 
Excellent read and history  Apr 3, 2003
This book does not just cover early Mennonite/Anabaptist roots it covers early church roots as well.

Written in a style that is easy to read and digest. It is an easy read and very informative!
