Mennonite Ministers' Use of Scripture

This book analyses one hundred years of Canadian Mennonite Ministers' Use of Scripture. Romans 10:10 serves as a key catechism text. Peter 2:21-24 and 2 Corinthians 5:20 reflect on the relationship between Jesus' reconciliation and pacifism. Matthew 9:13 represents an evangelism text in which ministers used honey instead of vinegar to call people to repentance. Luke 21:25-27 was used during Advent to preach about the Second Coming. Prayers of supplication are based on Psalm 88 and 102. 

The book can be ordered from Common Word Bookstore at Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg, Canadian Prairie Mennonite Ministers' Use of Scripture: 1874-1977 ( It can also be ordered for $35.00 plus $10.00 shipping by emailing
