Subtitled "The Mennonite Churches of Reading, Pennsylvania."
A sympathetic account of a journey of faith at the dawn of the 20th century, the Mennonites of Lancaster Co. and Berks Co. lived simple, well-regulated lives within their farm communities. They sold their produce in the markets of the nearby city of Reading where they met people from many cultures. Awakened to their spiritual responsibility, these Mennonite farmers began in 1922 to establish Sunday Schools and congregations in Reading. This account reviews 85 years of Mennonite church life in Reading and honors those who received and proclaimed the message of Jesus Christ. (316pp. illus. index. Author, 2007.)
