This book tells the story of the Chinese Mennonite churches of Indonesia, today called the Muria Church (GKMI: Gereja Kristen Muria Indonesia), the first non-western Mennonite church to be formally organized (September 27, 1925). Based on original research carried out in collaboration with writers such as J. Partowiguno and J. Herlianto, with additional data from Herman Tann, this present account is the fourth published revision of this story.


[In view of the lack of historical writing on the GKMI], it is particularly gratifying that Lawrence M. Yoder has written an extremely detailed history of this community. This outstandingly-documented book provides an excellent impression of the origin and development of this church. ----Alle Hoekema, reviewing Lawrence Yoder's original work in the Doopsgezinde Bijdragen, Nieuwe Reeks 8 (1982).
