Bridging Troubled Waters

Mennonite Brethren at Mid-Twentieth Century

The Mennonites, like many smaller immigrant religious groups, initially lived on the margins of North American society. The twentieth century brought them into the economic and cultural mainstream. That adaptation is the subject of the eleven essays and autobiographies of Bridging Troubled Waters.

The essays are written by notable Mennonite scholars -- John H. Redekop, Ted Regehr, Katie Funk Wiebe, and others. The autobiographies by David Ewert, Waldo Hiebert, and J.B. Toews sparkle with insight into the transitions they and their people navigated during these momentous decades (1940-1960).
