Anabaptist Witness launched on Friday, October 31, on its website: anabaptistwitness.org
The semi-annual journal that encourages "global Anabaptist and Mennonite dialogue on key issues facing the church in mission" is available for reading online. For those who prefer a print copy, visit the site for a link to purchasing a copy through Amazon.
The first issue of Anabaptist Witness focuses on Anabaptist and Mennonite understandings of mission and the interchange among mission practice, missiology and Anabaptist identity. It reflects ten different country and ethnic perspectives as well as different agency perspectives. Articles include academic pieces, a sermon, an interview and book reviews.
Co-editors are Jamie Pitts, who teaches Anabaptist studies at AMBS; and Jamie Ross, who works in international ministries with Mennonite Mission Network.
Anabaptist Witness is a publication of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Mennonite Church Canada, and Mennonite Mission Network.
An editorial committee works with the editors in guiding the content of the journal. Members of this committee are Malinda E. Berry, Elkhart, Ind.; Steve Heinrichs, Winnipeg, Man.; Matthew Krabill, Pasadena, Calif.; SaeJin Lee, Elkhart, Ind.; Gregory Rabus, Backnang, Germany; and Isaac Villegas, Chapel Hill, N.C.
