Anabaptist Memoir

Anabaptist is the name common to a number of groups who all trace their origins to the radical reformation in 16th-century Europe. I created a category for Anabaptist memoirs. These include Amish, Hutterite, and Mennonite.

Amish memoir:

Why I Left the Amish, by Saloma Miller Furlong, reviewed here.

Hutterite memoir:

I Am Hutterite, by Mary-Ann Kirkby, reviewed here

Mennonite memoir:

Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, by Rhoda Janzen, reviewed here.

At Powerline and Diamond Hill, by Lee Snyder, reviewed here.

Emma, by Ervin Stutzman, reviewed here.

A Hundred Camels, by Gerald. L. Miller, reviewed here.

The Steppes Are the Colour of Sepia, by Connie Braun, reviewed here.

A Mennonite Woman: Spiritual Life and Identity by Dawn Ruth Nelson reviewed in Mennonite Quarterly Review, Fall, 2011

Because I Can by Janet Oberholtzer, interviewed here

Growing Up Plain by ShirleyKurtz described in her essay here.

The two-volume set of short memoirs from the Anabaptist Center for Religion and Society is a great resource.

Just received: Small Steps Toward the Missing Peace: A Memoir by James C. Juhnke
