I am using this book as a resource for teaching adults about Mennonite history in our small Mennonite church made up mostly of people who are not from a Mennonite background. A good and useful overview. I do not particularly care for the authors' frequent statements of their own opinions as if they were facts, and would like a more thoroughly footnoted work. This is a popular presentation, not a scholarly work.
