History and Mission in Europe

Continuing the conversation

Issues of European missiology and recent church history have been somewhat neglected in recent years. This volume is intended to help fill the gap by bringing together essays by European scholars or those closely connected to that continent, from the United Kingdom to the Russian Federation. New information and fresh perspectives are presented both by familiar writers and some who are almost unknown to North American audiences. German and Russian articles include an English-language abstract.

The collection is inspired by the many ministries of Walter Sawatsky, the foremost North American Mennonite authority on the Christian church in the former Soviet Union and Europe and a prolific writer in the fields of church history and missiology.

It will be of particular interest to historians and missiologists, especially in Anabaptist circles, as well as to students in those fields. Researchers, students, and church leaders in the Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union will find it useful as well.
