This book is a biography of pioneer publisher John F. Harms (1855-1945). Through his story one gets a good view of the first 75 years or so of the development of the Mennonite Brethren (MB) Church in North America. Harms was in the vanguard of movements such as missions, education, evangelism, relief work, and church ministry in the MB church, a denomination that established itself on this side of the Atlantic in the 1870s. But Harms is remembered best for his work in MB publications. He was a member of the committee that launched the Zionsbote newspaper and served as its first editor and publisher for more than twenty years. The biographer is himself an MB newspaper editor and distant relative of the pioneer publisher.
