Building Communities: The Changing face of Manitoba Mennonites

John J. Friesen

This award-winning book is not only a comprehensive and accessible history of Manitoba Mennonites who emigrated from Europe in the 19th century to seek religious freedom and live out their pacifist convictions, but it also looks at today's Mennonites in all their cultural, ethnic, linguistic and theological diversity.
Generously illustrated with photographs and maps, and including illuminating excerpts from hundreds of personal and official documents, it is an important contribution to the history of Manitoba.
Commissioned by the Manitoba Mennonite Historical Society, this book includes new emphsis on the experience of women, Mennonite folklore, urban life, and lively young Mennonite congregations of East Asian, African, Latin American and Aboriginal origin.
