Reviews of A President's Journey PDF

Dr. Henry Poettcker's memoirs recount his passage from a Russian Mennonite farm boy to the president of Canadian Mennonite Bible College (now CMU) and the president of Mennonite Biblical Seminary (now AMBS). Under his leadership, both institutions experienced major development and growth, and yet, where others would boast of such accomplishments, Dr. Poettcker reveals a modest life of devotion to God.

Reviews of A Generation of Vigilance PDF

For three decades Johannes Harder was the best known leader among Mennonite Brethren in British Columbia. Written with care by respected scholar T.D. Regehr, this biography traces the legacy left by Johannes and Tina as well as their experience as Russian immigrants in early 20th Century British Columbia.

Sometimes controversial because of the way the couple tried to maintain strict codes of Christian conduct, the Harders are also remembered for their positive contributions. Johannes was acknowledged to be a tireless worker, as a preacher and pastor, and Tina is remembered for her hospitality and generosity. Although circumstances differed greatly between Russia and Western Canada, it has been suggested that both the strengths and weakness of their ministry in British Columbia were rooted in their Russian Mennonite Brethren heritage.
