    One thought on “Stories: How Mennonites Came to Be”

    1. The writing in this book is as reader friendly as a history book can be and still be a credible source of information. The word "history" does not appear in the title presumably in an effort to appear more attractive to prospective readers. Avoidance of the word may also deflect some criticism from professional historians who may regard it to be "history light" with inadequate depth. I haven't come up with a better title to replace the title "Stories," though that title doesn't seem all that des [...]

    2. Stories is a brief account of Mennonite/Anabaptist history beginning with the early church following the death of Christ up until present day (2006, when the book was published). As the title suggests, Roth combines history, narrative, and theology, forming an accessible summary of how Mennonites came to be.

    3. Written as a non-academic book (and therefore very accessible), but still informative. Needs footnotes and an index, in my opinion.

Also includes some helpful thoughts on modern approaches to the Global Mennonite Church.

    4. Great reflection on the history of Mennonites in society. Was very interesting. Gives a historical perspective of the rise of anabaptism as well as describes many sects of contemporary Mennonites all around the world.
