The Mennonite Experience in America Series weaves together the histories of all Mennonite and Amish groups in the United States. It offers something new in Mennonite and Amish history: an attempt to tell not only the inside story but also how one religious people, or set of peoples, has lived and developed along with the pluralism of the nation.

James C. Juhnke explores the story of Mennonites and Amish in America from 1890 to 1930. He reveals how Mennonites responded to the challenges of war as well as doctrinal and cultural changes.

In the four decades covered, American Mennonites nearly doubled in membership. Their encounters with Protestant revivalism, organizational techniques, modernism, and World War I affected each group differently. Volume 3.
