Book series from IMS

The Institute of Mennonite Studies has five series in which some of their books are published:

Classics of the Radical Reformation

Classics of the Radical Reformation was inaugurated to make major selections from sixteenth-century Anabaptist source documents available in translation with interpretive introductions for a broad English language readership. Read more


Intercultural Biblical Hermeneutics Series

The Intercultural Biblical Hermeneutics Series is offered to Bible scholars and interested practitioners with a twofold purpose: to present the fruits of ongoing research in the new field of empirical intercultural hermeneutics, and to foster further conversation and collaboration. Read more


Occasional Papers

In the Occasional Papers series, Institute of Mennonite Studies—sometimes in collaboration with other Mennonite publishers—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. In accepting papers for publication, IMS gives priority to authors (faculty, students, alumni) from Mennonite seminaries, colleges, and universities. Read more


Studies in Peace and Scripture

Studies in Peace and Scripture is sponsored by the Institute of Mennonite Studies. The seminary and the tradition it represents have a particular interest in peace but, even more so, an interest in the Bible. This ecumenical series contributes to a deeper understanding of both. Read more


Text Readers

The Institute of Mennonite Studies Text Reader series seeks to make available resources that have promise for seminary classroom use. Priority is given to publishing materials with an orientation toward or relevance for Anabaptist-Mennonite theological tradition. Read more
