Save 50%! This collection of original essays focuses on the rich, historically diverse, and often misunderstood experiences of Amish, Mennonite and other women of Anabaptist traditions across 400 years. Equal parts sociology, religious history, and gender studies, the book explores the changing roles and issues surrounding Anabaptist women in communities ranging from 16th century Europe to contemporary North America. Among the topics addressed by the contributors are: How womanhood was defined by early Anabaptist societies; How 19th century Amish tightened the connections among the individual, the family, the household, and the community; The changing work world and domestic life; The recent ascendancy of antimodernism and plain dress among the Amish; and The special difficulties faced by scholars from within the Anabaptist tradition who use historical or sociological methods to study that culture.

by Paul Toews
paper, 448 pages, $19.95
This volume provides a rich interpretive story of how Mennonites have preserved their identity through the 20th century.

Paul Toews examines ways progressive Mennonites have slowed their absorption into American culture through creating institutional systems, refining and rearticulating ideologies, building ecumenical alliances, and developing a service and missional activism. Meanwhile, the Amish have formed a creative set of adaptive strategies that permit economic integration and social isolation.

An in-depth look at how Mennonites nad Amish were able to become a more visible and respected people than ever before during their more than 300 years in America. Volume 4.

The Amish are widely known and appreciated for their quiet industry, their religious devotion, and their unique culture, but they have rarely produced stories of cross-cultural missionaries. Until now, that is. Miss Nancy is the inspiring and fascinating story of God's work in the life on one Amish missionary to Belize. As a result of her years of selfless service to the small Central American nation, Miss Nancy Coblentz is known and loved by thousands, from street waifs to statement, from paupers to a prime minister. Whether in drudgery, danger, or success, Miss Nancy's dauntless faith and devotion have inspired and challenged countless people. Her story is both entertaining and edifying. As you read it, you will be amazed at the God who uses ordinary people to produce extraordinary results.
