About the Book

In this biography of Benjamin B. Janz (1877-1964), historian John B. Toews places Janz's life in historical perspective, including his formative years and his weighty leadership roles in both Ukraine and Canada. The contribution of B.B. Janz to Mennonites by giving them leadership in their resettlement from Russia to Canada in the 1920s was significant. His spiritual leadership within the Mennonite Brethren Church was also bold and legendary. Toews has sifted through Janz's extensive documentary collection of meeting minutes, correspondence, and papers in order to give the reader an understanding of the man and of that particular period of Russian Mennonite history.
