Scholarship for the Church

At AMBS, our faculty, staff, and students are committed to producing scholarship that not only furthers discussions within academia but also edifies the church and advances God's reconciling mission in the world. In addition to regular faculty publications, AMBS publishes two semi-annual journals, Anabaptist Witness and Vision: A Journal of Church and Theology, in partnership with other Mennonite instutitions. Founded in 1958, the Institute of Mennonite Studies at AMBS is one of North America's longest-running seminary-based publishers. The institute oversees publication of five book series and produced the widely used Anabaptist prayer book and free app Take Our Moments. AMBS's state-of-the-art library, opened in 2007, holds over 100,000 print volumes, subscribes to numerous electronic resources, and hosts various Mennonite-related open-access digital resources.
