From the Back Cover --

In its 275 years, this staid and solid congregation has endured monumental cultural changes and spiritual challenges. For much of its history it persistently defended traditional expressions of faith and practice. It resisted innovation and individualism that threatened to fragment the community and weaken the core commitment to discernment through mutual yieldedness. Its substantial stone meetinghouse symbolizes that stability. Lederach is a seasoned churchman . . . [whose] spiritual and family roots are planted deeply in Franconia conference. Lederach has plumbed the corporate memory of the congregation to give us access to that memory. He presents this congregation's story in broad strokes, and yet with an amazing amount of detail.
-John E. Sharp, Director Mennonite Church USA Historical Committee
