As a Mennonite, I am both grateful to have been educated and supported by Mennonite institutions, and critical of how often Mennonite institutions fail to live up to the values and ethics we espouse. Most of my writing about Mennonites relates to the discrepancy between Mennonite ethics and Mennonite practice.

Also see Living on the Edge of the Edge: Letters to a Younger Colleague by Ruth Krall. This book is a series of conversations and letters that Mennonite professor Ruth Krall sent to me over the course of several years. Ruth Krall was my professor of peace studies at Goshen College from 1986-1988.
