Occasional Papers Series

In the Occasional Papers series, Institute of Mennonite Studies publishes essays in the fields of Bible, history, theology, ethics and pastoral ministry. The intent of the series is to foster discussion and to seek counsel, particularly from within the Mennonite theological community. Many essays are in finished form; some may be in a more germinal stage, released for purposes of testing and inviting critical response.
