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.

About Mennonites
Worship

These practices, he argues, are part of an essential unity that transforms and renews the people of God and calls them to lives of integrity that are embodied with discipleship and mission. Roth reflects on distinctive Mennonite practices such as baptism, communion, foot washing, and common meals.

About Mennonites
Faith
This short, engaging book gives a brief account of what Mennonites believe. From the beginnings of the Anabaptist (or Mennonite) movement in the 16th century, to biblical interpretation, baptism, understandings of the church, ethics, and the complex question of denominationalism, John Roth provides a solid framework for on-going conversations about faithful discipleship in the Mennonite church today.

Theology
After several centuries of indifference, misrepresentation, and ridule, the Anabaptist tradition has come to enjoy new levels of attention and respect from current leading theologians and ethicists. Anabaptist-Mennonite theological themes, like the Old Order Amish, are almost chic-the inspiration for numerous books, scholarly conferences, and high-minded debate.

Here, thirteen Protestant and Catholic scholars reflect on how their understandings of the Christian faith have been shaped by their encounter with the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition.

Written in an engaging, autobiographical style, the essays balance commendations with incisive critique. This collection includes essays by Richard Mouw, Nancey Murphy, Samuel Escobar, Stanley Hauerwas, James W. McClendon, Stuart Murray, and Richard B. Hays.

Violence
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 anyone concerned about the endless cycles of wars and violence, and the possibility that God's love is stronger than our society's current answers.
