About the Book

David Ewert (1922-2010) was a highly respected Bible teacher, preacher, and scholar among the Mennonite Brethren during the second half of the 20th century. His voice spoke into a remarkable number of the theological issues facing the Mennonite Brethren of his era. As a full-time teacher at various times in at least five Mennonite Brethren educational institutions in North America, he shaped the theological views of literally thousands of students, many of whom became pastors, missionaries, and leaders within the church.

Dr. Ewert was a leader during an important transitional period for Mennonite Brethren. During the early period of his ministry, he served with many leaders who had gained most of their educational background and experience in Russia and who were not fluent in the English language. Ewert became fluent in English and received all of his theological education in North America.

Professor Ewert's roots were nevertheless closely linked to the culture of the previous generation, even as he taught a new generation of Mennonite Brethren who were attuned to North American culture and values. Some viewed him as an innovator who had become much too "liberal." For example, his rejection of dispensationalism and his acceptance of the Revised Standard Version of the Bible made him suspect in the eyes of many. In time, others viewed him as too conservative on certain issues, particularly on such issues as women in ministry leadership.

This autobiography gives us insight into the nature of the man, the nature of the church, and the nature of the world which formed the backdrop to Ewert's career.
