Book Mennonites  Politics  and Peoplehood

Download or read Mennonites Politics and Peoplehood PDF, written by James Urry and published by Univ. of Manitoba Press. This book was released on 2006 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mennonites and their forebears are usually thought to be a people with little interest or involvement in politics. "Mennonites, Politics, and Peoplehood" reveals that since their early history, Mennonites have, in fact, been active participants in worldly politics. From western to eastern Europe and through different migrations to North America, James Urry's meticulous research traces Mennonite links with kingdoms, empires, republics, and democratic nations in the context of peace, war, and revolution. He stresses a degree of Mennonite involvement in politics not previously discussed in literature, including Mennonite participation in constitutional reform and party politics, and shows the polarization of their political views from conservatism to liberalism and even revolutionary activities. Using a wide variety of sources, Mennonite, Politics, and Peoplehood combines an inter-disciplinary approach to reveal that Mennonites, far from being the "Quiet in the Land," have deep roots in politics.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE PHOENIX BELLS Long ago and far away, there was a wondrous land... A land of everlasting spring where willow trees grew as blades of grass. A land where all the dragons of the world dwelt in peace, filling the fragrant air with their silver song. Then one day the wise men came to the emperor to warn him of a darkness that threatened the land and all within. He must leave his palace, they urged, and travel to strange and distant places to seek a bride. He must find an empress for the land, who can light the dragonleaf with her touch and hear the silvery music of the dragons. Or their song will cease forever. THE BLACK JADE ROAD Long ago, when it was always spring.… A road ran between what would someday be Europe and the Land of Ten Thousand Willows, where sleepy dragons stretched in the sun. It was in this age that two were bound together, first by fate, then by love: the young Emperor Ty-Sun, and the Puritan girl, Blessing Dunncaster. He from a cultured land where magic and manners were one. She from dark, brooding Britain, with the witch-power wild in her blood. Together, they must fight and find their way to the Black Jade Road, where each step counts as five — and each danger, ten. For the pearls that are days are running low. A darkness is falling over the land. And the dragons are singing a mournful song of Death.… THE WILLOW GARDEN LONG AGO, WHEN A SILENT SNOWFALL BLANKETED THE EASTERN LAND … The brave young Emperor Ty-Sun traveled the Black Jade Road with Blessing Dunncaster, the bewitched and beautiful Englishwoman who would be his empress. Together they made their way back to the Land of Ten Thousand Willows. Pursuing them was the evil Darkness that felled Ty-Sun's loyal followers one by one. Ahead, far beyond the Jade Mountains, the Wall of Living Stone, and the palaces of the god-judges from Hell, lay Ty-Sun's once-glorious kingdom, now ravaged by his enemies. Has time run out for the Dragons of the Earth? Now Ty-Sun and Blessing prepare for a final struggle of fearsome battle — and wondrous magic — to save the dragons, their love, and … the Willow Garden.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: She gazed at the majestic stone building from a distance; with the sun reflecting in the tall gabled windows, it was lovely enough to be a little palace. But appearance is deceiving; inside it was a chamber of evil. In 1939, Hitlers invasion of Holland crashed like a thunderbolt upon the unsuspecting Dutch people. The dreaded word Occupation ruled their existence, but this family of three chose to defend the Motherland. Hillie worked as a double agent; shy, twelve year old Anje was a courier, and Jan became a collaborator. Secrets and lies, the concealment of Jews, Allied pilots in hiding, all were considered acts of treason which could condemn them in this notorious House of Blood and Tears. The consequence of their involvement was costly in Hitlers Holocaust. A vivid history of World War II in the Netherlands, this is an amazing account of great courage and daring, with a surprise conclusion.
