"Seeking Places of Peace: The Challenge of Writing a History of Mennonites in North America," Prof. Steven Nolt -- MHS Public Lecture
In this public lecture, sponsored by the Goshen College Department of History and the Mennonite Historical Society, Prof. Steven M. Nolt, will reflect on the challenges of writing a new history of Mennonites in North America. Nolt, who co-authored the book with Canadian Mennonite historian Royden Loewen, brings his extensive knowledge of U.S. history and the Amish-Mennonite story together in this timely volume. The newly-published book, _Seeking Places of Peace_, is the fifth and final volume in the Global Mennonite History Series, a project initiated by Mennonite World Conference. The lecture is free and open to the public, and copies of the book will be available for sale.
