About the Book

In this book, Lynn Jost and Connie Faber introduce readers to the Mennonite Brethren family, a family of Christian churches with roots in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. According to Jost and Faber, "Getting to know a family well involves the discovery of its particular and current traits, and it also involves studying its background. The first task identifies those characteristics and views that we might call the family's particular 'ethos,' and identifies its passion and resources. The second offers some explanation of why things are the way they are."
