Reformers, self-styled prophets, teachers, preachers, and common folk come alive in this fast-paced history. Through Fire and Water is a popularized, yet accurate look at Mennonites.

Includes stories, photos, maps, and cartoons. In addition, brief essays invite reflection on such issues as church and state, world outreach, and the marks of a faithful community.
