A Table of Sharing
This volume explores how Mennonite Central Committee has
served as a key vehicle for inter-Mennonite collaboration from 1920 onward.
Over 20 scholars from various disciplines examine different ways in which
MCC has contributed to expanding networks of Mennonite identity.
Editor Alain Epp Weaver . . . has assembled a score of gifted scholars to contribute insightful . . . essays on the story and program of an institution grappling with some of the most critical issues of the twenty-first century.” —Robert S. Kreider, President Emeritus, Bluffton University and Bethel College, in the Foreword
“This story of MCC is a story of the church in action. It is the story of the church meeting needs of communities around the world, which is why the Mennonite World Conference family has for many years cherished its close and mutual relationship with MCC. As A Table of Sharing shows, the church at its best ministers not only to the spiritual needs of the peoples of the world but also to those needs that many times define, classify, or categorize persons as less privileged and vulnerable.” —Danisa Ndlovu, President, Mennonite World Conference
“This book offers fascinating glimpses into the controversies surrounding the creation of MCC, and how and why this religious NGO pursues its mission around the world of peacebuilding, disaster relief, economic development. Individuals interested in the intricacies of inter-Mennonite relations, history, and cultures in North America will find the book especially revealing.” —Dean E. Peachey, Vice Principal, The University of Winnipeg Global College
