Vision journal

Vision: A Journal for Church and Theology is published twice a year to encourage theological reflection on the identity, mission, and practices of the church from an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective.

The journal is published by the Institute of Mennonite Studies at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary and by Canadian Mennonite University (Winnipeg, MB). For more information, visit

With the publication of the Fall 2017 issue, Vision has a vivid new look and a new AMBS editor, Andy Brubacher Kaethler.

Fall 2017: Proclaiming Christ in a Pluralistic Context

Edited by Mary H. Schertz

In her editorial Mary Schertz writes:

“You will find in these pages a rich assortment of experiences and perspectives. You will find a diversity of opinion and a variety of answers and suggestions. There is also something, I am gratified to say, that you will not find. You will not see anyone arguing that we need to tone down our proclamation of Christ in order to avoid offending our ecumenical or interfaith dialogue partners. Yes, in all cases, we must be respectful. Yes, in all cases, we must listen—even more than we speak. But we need not deny the strength of our convictions.”
