Roots & Branches:
A Narrative History of the Amish and Mennonites in Southeast United States, 1892-1992
This book, volume 1 of two (Volume 2), tells the story of Southeast Mennonite Conference into the 1960s. From its inception, SMC has been a diverse Mennonite denominational body including small churches rooted in missions and larger congregations of Sarasota, Florida, begun by Mennonites who moved south for sunshine and business opportunities.
"The evident working of the Holy Spirit, the foibles and faith of leaders and laypeople, and the struggles of cultural and regional differences in the founding and metamorphosis of the Mennonite church in the Southeast make Roots and Branches an interesting read and a valuable history resource." —Irene Bechler, former urban church planter; teacher and counselor; Member, Outreach Commission, College Mennonite Church
