About the Book

This book traces 120 years of missionary outreach activity (1860-1980) by a relativity small slice of the Christian Church, the Mennonite Brethren and the Krimmer Mennonite Brethren--two church denominations that merged in 1960. The focus of well-known missions professor Dr. G.W. Peters' survey is the foundation, the beginnings, of Mennonite Brethren missionary activity, first in Russia, and then primarily as a sending agency in North America. Topics discussed include: the development of mission within the structure of the Mennonite renewal movement known as Mennonite Brethren; the awakening and nurture of mission interest; and the theology, philosophy, organization, legislation, administration, and expansion of the global missionary enterprise of this particular segment of the Christian missionary movement. While there were disagreements about specific strategies and practices, there was no disagreement about the foundation of missions. The methods used and the polices made reflect the mission thinking current in that day.
