American Mennonites and Protestant Movements: A Community Paradigm
Describes the key religious values in a major Mennonite settlement over a period of three centuries in its encounter with other religoius movements including pietism, revivalism, fundamentalism and institutionalism. The author analyzes how Mennonites both resisted these influences and were changed by them. The book also documents the codification of practice in the twentieth century and how restrictions waned as a growing emphasis on peace and service emerged. Paperback. Wipf & Stock, 2002. 366 pages.
