|Teaching That Transforms: Why Anabaptist-Mennonite Education Matters||View|
|by John D. Roth|
paperback, 236 pages, $12.95|
|With billions of dollars spent annually to educate children and youth, education is at the forefront of the news today. John D. Roth makes the case for a church-related alternative to the public school system-one shaped by the distinctive emphases of the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. |
Teaching That Transforms outlines a pedagogy that is consciously attentive to God's presence in the world, and that cultivates habits of worship, nurtures living traditions, and promotes caring and compassionate relationships.
Roth offers an open, lively, vigorous, and honest conversation about the nature of our Christian witness to the world and about the future of the church.

scholars reflect on how their understandings of the Christian faith
have been shaped by their encounter with the Anabaptist-Mennonite

|Choosing Against War: A Christian View||View|
|by John D. Roth|
paperback, 128 pages, $9.95|
|How might Christians look on the world differently if they-actually!-believed that God's love was indeed stronger than our fears?
In fresh, confessional language, Roth shares his convictions about
Christian pacifism, inviting others to consider this possibility, all
the while humbly admitting the difficulties.
What would happen if
Christians assumed that their allegiance to God, their identity with
Christ, and their commitment to the church would inevitably lead them
to respond to the world's pain differently because of their faith? In
the face of violence, are there any options open to the Christian
believer other than the "default" impulse toward patriotic unity and a
steely determination to exact "an eye for an eye"?
A must-read for
