From the publisher of Martyrs Mirror comes this refreshing, reflective, heartbreaking, humorous—and sometimes irreverent—anthology of poems, creative essays and fiction by new and noted authors with connections to the Anabaptist tradition.

Featuring writers such as Rudy Wiebe, Di Brandt, Jeff Gundy, Jean Janzen, Julia Kasdorf, John Ruth, Rhoda Janzen and others, Tongue Screws and Testimonies shows how stories from Martyrs Mirror intersect with the lives of writers and their characters—and how these stories continue to have a powerful hold on faith, life and imagination today.

Collected and edited by Kirsten Eve Beachy, who teaches writing at Eastern Mennonite University, Tongue Screws and Testimonies challenges readers to consider the implications of Martyrs Mirror in their own lives.

Tongue Screws and Testimonies is for the young woman who remembers hiding behind the couch at her grandparents’ house to look at Jan Luykens’ engravings, and who still gets chills thinking about it. It’s for the man who, drawn into a Mennonite congregation in middle age, is trying to get a grasp of Anabaptist history. It will serve as a conversation starter with theologians of many traditions who are concerned with the difficulties of living faithfully.“—Kirsten Eve Beachy
