MORE INFORMATION

Local Barb Draper guides her reader through Waterloo Region's Mennonite community in all its different forms, looking closely at Mennonite Church Eastern Canada, Old Order Mennonites, David Martins, and the other Mennonite Groups that populate the region. She tells the story of Mennonite settlers' immigration to the area and gives a vivid description of their community life and changing theology during the 19th century. Theis background provides the context for Draper's main intention - to help the reader understand the diversity of Mennonites in Waterloo, the reasons for the splits in the church, and the ties that still hold them all together under the name "Mennonite."
