Reconciliation on the Prairies
For decades, stories have spread throughout the village of Laird, Saskatchewan. The First Nations than came to the town, starting in the 1970s, insisted that a treaty signed between their people and the Government of Canada states the land actually belongs to an indigenous first nation. When a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird discover that the land they live on is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation, they are forced to acknowledge their history. Myths, assumptions and fears are shattered as this old injustice is about to provide an opportunity for friendship and renew a fierce determination to repair the wrongs of the past.

World War II has been exhaustively examined, but there are men in their nineties with something to still bring to the conversation: the Conscientious Objectors.

A University of the Church for the World:
Essays in Honour of Gerald Gerbrandt
What does it mean to be a Mennonite university?
This book answers that question in a descriptive, rather than a prescriptive way, drawing on the thought and experience of the faculty, staff, and alumni of Canadian Mennonite University, as well as the leaders of the churches that formed it and a neighbouring provincial university. While the book comes out of the life of CMU, it is meant to be a resource for anyone interested in questions of religion and university, from the broadest to the most particular of concerns.
This book is written in honour of Gerald Gerbrandt, who was President of CMU from 2003-2012, and who for years previous to that took part in leading the formation of the university.
