No Guardians At The Gate
Bob Burtt, Author

The Elmira story sometimes has been cluttered with legal manoeuvering, appeals, and science that isnít easy to understand or explain. But, at its heart, the story is about a company that knew a lot about making chemicals, not much about protecting the environment; a provincial government that didnít have the teeth, manpower or political will to enforce its laws; and residents who were prepared to do whatever it took to protect their community.

Jane Ann McLachlan, Author

Connections is comprised of ten dramatic stories about the differences that separate people: differences of opinion, lifestyle, situation, culture and appearance. It is also about the difficulties people face, and how isolated their pain or sorrow can make them feel. Finally, it is about how we can bridge those differences and that sense of isolation with understanding, compassion, and faith. An excellent resource for small group ministry, such as book clubs, adult education, focus forums, womenís or menís groups or retreats the stories in this book are intended to be uplifting, thought-provoking and interesting.

Worrying About Evolution
Owen Gingrich, Author

During a fateful period in 1923-24 Goshen College was closed as a consequence of a struggle within the Mennonite Church that can be identified as between conservative and liberal ideas. Goshen College was considered to be too liberal. A result was the removal of certain offending volumes from the college library and a shunning of ideas such as Darwinian evolution. Owen Gingerich, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy and of the History of Science at Harvard University and a senior astronomer emeritus at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, relates this in the beginning of his lectures and introduces the primary protagonists in the national struggle for the mind of American biology: Louis Agassiz and Asa Gray of Harvard.
