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.
