What People are saying about this

Trollinger William Vance Jr
"One of the preeminent Mennonite historians of our time, Roth successfully weaves a complicated set of stories into a fascinating narrative that stretches from the early church to the present, and covers the globe. Stories is a remarkable achievement, a must-read for those who don't know the Anabaptist story, and for those who think they do."--(William Vance Trollinger Jr., Bluffton University)
Karl Koop
This work needs to be in print. It addresses contemporary issues, and linking the past and the present is a strength of this work."--(Karl Koop, Canadian Mennonite University)
Jonathan Showalter
"Roth weaves together narrative, biography, and theology in an engaging, compelling, and sometimes provocative fashion. This book is an invitation to consider how what happened back then can illuminate the task of following Jesus now. It will encourage and challenge anyone seeking to be a faithful follower."--(Jonathan Showalter, Rosedale Bible College)
