Save 50%! On a May Sunday in 1927, progress and tradition collided at the Groffdale Old Order Mennonite Church in eastern Pennsylvania when half the congregation shunned the cup of wine offered by Bishop Moses Horning. The boycott of this holiest of Mennonite customs was indirect response to Horning's decision to endorse the automobile after years of debate within the church. The resulting schism over opposing views of technology produced the group known as the Wenger Mennonites.

In this first-of-its-kind study of the Wenger Mennonites, Kraybill and Hurd-a sociologist and an anthropologist-use cultural analysis to interpret the Wengers both in and outside Pennsylvania. They systematically compare the Wengers with other Mennonite groups as well as with the Amish, showing how relationships with these other groups have had powerful impact on shaping the identity of the Wenger Mennonites in the Anabaptist world.

Save 50%! A collection of 50 common and quirky questions about Mennonites that the Mennonite-related Third Way Cafe website, www.thirdway.com, has received over the years. Third Way Cafe is a ministry of Mennonite Mission Network and Mennonite Church USA. This book, Ask Third Way Cafe, also records straight-up, no-nonsense answers to those questions. Mennonites will find it helpful and interesting to know what other people wonder about them. And anyone new to the Mennonite church or simply curious about Mennonites-their history, theology, lifestyle, and more-can benefit from this FAQ (frequently asked questions) resource.

What do Mennonites believe in? Who started it? Are Mennonites allowed to fight people that attack them? Why do they live the way they do? Would it be ok if I became a Mennonite?

Such are the questions Third Way Cafe receives on an almost daily basis. Through the Internet, people anywhere in the world can satisfy their curiosity, follow their personal spiritual path, or just research essays for school without the pressure of the face-to-face interview or the potential embarrassment of a "stupid" question-even about Mennonites.

Those curious about Mennonites will learn more about them. And those already Mennonite will likely find the questions fascinating, amusing, humbling, bewildering-and prompting thoughtful consideration of how they might answer these 50 questions.
