Fourteen Goshen College students spent the summer working with professors on various research projects during the college’s eight-week Maple Scholars program in June and July.
Saloma Miller Furlong, author of “Why I Left the Amish,” just published by Michigan State University Press, will give a reading and presentation titled, “Two Lives in One: Inside and Outside the Amish.”
Having been involved in Mennonite education nearly his whole life -as a student, parent and professor- Goshen College Professor of History John D. Roth knows the subject of his new book, Teaching that Transforms: Why Anabaptist-Mennonite Education Matters (Herald Press, February 2011), quite intimately.
How do the practices, habits and routines of worship form Christian -and specifically Mennonite- identity? Goshen College Professor of History John D. Roth explores these questions in his new book “Practices: Mennonite Worship and Witness,” (Herald Press, 2009). “Practices” is the final book in his three volume series on Mennonite identity in the 21st century.
To add to its already extensive list of original Anabaptist writings, the Mennonite Historical Library (MHL) and Goshen College have recently purchased a rare book of Anabaptist martyr accounts and hymns that pre-dates “Martyrs Mirror” (first edition, 1660)- the famous 1,290 page book that documents Anabaptist martyrs.
