About the Book

This book is the fruit of Anna Esau's ten years of research--gathering pictures and interviewing missionaries--in order to relate the personal experiences of missionaries in their daily life on the "mission field" for readers in the U.S. and Canada. The book is written in a popular style and contains many insights into the American Mennonite Brethren mission fields, both foreign mission fields and home or city mission fields. It was designed for home study purposes as well as for course work in a school setting. Esau's book documents well the assumptions, aspirations, and practices of Mennonite Brethren missionaries at the mid-point of the 20th century.
