Seeking Places of Peace by Royden Loewen
A Global Mennonite History

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


          Perhaps the most inclusive, sweeping, and insightful history ever written about the North American Mennonite saga.             Both authors are eminent historians. Royden Loewen is Professor of History, with a chair in Mennonite Studies, at the University of Winnipeg. Steven M. Nolt is Professor of History at Goshen (IN) College.             Both authors of this book bring to the task the insights of "social history." As such, they focus on people in many geographical environments rather than on institutional development and theological controversy.             Readable, understandable, and incisive. Appeals to all ages and all groups.
