He Flew Too High
Saul McNamara believes God is telling him his work as a Korean War nuclear bombing strategist is evil. For this reason and with moral support from the Mennonites and their leader, Bishop Krehbiel, Saul leaves his career, marries the Bishop's daughter, and falls in love with her pacifist Mennonite community. However, Saul grows disillusioned because he believes 1950s prosperity has lulled the Mennonites into a dangerous sleep. This suspense story with a strong spiritual undercurrent tells of one man's quest to bring an awakening to a reluctant people. But will Saul lose his community, wife and family, and even the voice of God in his life? (350pp. WinePress Pub., 2009.)
Mastie and Ira Stoltzfus, Mennonite brothers in Lancaster, Pa., face the draft in World War I. Ira chooses the traditional Mennonite position of conscientious objection to war. Mastie, on the other hand, joins the Army and is excommunicated from the church. As the story shifts back and forth between Ira and Mastie, you will be caught up in a powerful examination of love and war, duty and conscience, and the starkly different experiences of two boys from the same Mennonite home. This classic retelling of the prodigal son story set in World War I America includes a thoughtful foreword essay on Mennonites and the military by Professor Joel Hartman of the University of Missouri. Reprinted so a whole new generation can enjoy! (518pp. Masthof Press, 2009 reprint.)
