My book has been endorsed by some wonderful people; some I know personally, some I've never met face-to-face, but had heard about. I'm very grateful for their kind words and their willingness to write an endorsement and am truly humbled and touched each time I read them.
So today, the first snippet will be one of these heart-warming endorsements. It's from John Friesen, who I've known for many years. He's professor emeritus, Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg, Manitoba and I'm honoured to say, I've taken some of his church history courses. Mr. Friesen also kindly agreed to edit one of the chapters pertaining to our history.
“What an amazing book! Informative, interesting, entertaining, and very well written. Through skillfully told stories, Linda Maendel, an insider, guides the reader on a journey exploring the world of a Hutterite community. Her book provides an important addition to the literature now available about Hutterite life.” — John J. Friesen, Professor Emeritus, Canadian Mennonite University
