"This work needs to be in print.... It addresses contemporary issues, and linking the past and the present is a strength of this work." —Karl Koop, Canadian Mennonite University

"Roth weaves together narrative, biography, and theology in an engaging, compelling, and sometimes provocative fashion. This book is an invitation to consider how what happened back then can illuminate the task of following Jesus now." —Jonathan Showalter, Rosedale Bible College
