A Mennonite Spirituality
Ever wonder what Mennonite spirituality is or if there is such a
thing? Gordon Houser explores the heart of Mennonite spirituality and how
Mennonite spiritual practices may succeed or fall short. Present Tense is not a
grammar book but a personal and incisive look at what lies at the heart of
Mennonite (and Christian) living. Learn how practice makes perfect, how patience
brings peace, how prayer and politics are present in play.
In his Foreword, Richard Rohr insightfully places Present Tense in the context of his view of Mennonites then concludes, “That’s the way I see it, anyway. But read this inspiring book, and you will know how Gordon Houser sees it— which is much better.”
“Wise, gentle and grace-filled reflections on spirituality from a Mennonite perspective. I recommend it highly!” —John D. Roth, Professor of History, Goshen College
“Houser has looked at the practices valued highly in his Mennonite community— patient following, peaceful reconciling, political integrity, playful relating, prayerful thinking, perfect imperfection and celebrating the present—and allowed them to be a mirror of his own life in the Spirit and as a member of ‘the community of the Spirit.’ The book is a great read, except for when it starts reading you back and nudging to practice things left unpracticed.” —David Augsburger, Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary
