This week my publisher, MennoMedia, issued two releases related to my book.
- A press release on In Search of Promised Lands at http://www.mennomedia.org/?Page=8133
- My guest blog providing more context on my approach to writing the book. Partly extracted from the book’s preface, it begins:
As I waded into a six-year project on writing the history of Mennonites in Ontario, I had to think carefully of how I stood in relation to the subject matter. I knew that no historical writing is objective. Each interpreter of past events is shaped by personal heritage, training, and beliefs, not to mention the resources available when making that interpretation. I decided I should be as transparent as possible in describing my perspective and my place in this history of Ontario Mennonites.
