Product Description

People's Place Book #12

Late in the 19th century, a major segment of the Mennonite church divided from the main body of Mennonites, primarily over participation in Sunday schools and revival meetings, and the rapid acceptance of English in church life. They were called Old Older Mennonites. In the mid-20th century, another significant separatist movement developed, mostly from concern over what was considered compromise with the world and its rapidly changing systems. These are the Conservative Mennonites. With many anecdotal stories and lots of photographs, Stephen Scott examines and explains the fascinating history of these two growing groups of Mennonite peoples in An Introduction to Older Order and Conservative Mennonite Groups.

Publisher's Description

          This book tells a story which until now has not been available in such an interesting and comprehensive form. What holds these people together? Why are they growing in number? Where do they live? The Old Order Mennonites are less well known than the Amish, but are similar in many beliefs and practices. Some Old Order Mennonites drive horses and buggies. Others use cars for transportation. Conservative Mennonite groups vary a great deal, but in general espouse strong faith and family life and believe that how they live should distinguish them from the larger society around them.           The author details courtship and wedding practices, methods of worship, dress, transportation, and vocation. Never before has there been such an inside account of these people and their lives. The author spent years conferring and interviewing members of the various groups, trying to portray their history and their story in a fair and accurate manner. An enjoyable, educational, inspiring book.
