New Study Guide and Kindle edition now available for Peaceful at Heart
We are pleased to announce that a study guide for the book Peaceful at Heart is now available! Written by Dan Epp-Tiessen, Associate Professor of Bible at Canadian Mennonite University, and published in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee, Mennonite Church Canada, Mennonite Church Eastern Canada, and Be in Christ Canada, this study guide is a great resource to facilitate much-needed conversations about masculinity, church, and our Christian faith. Download the study guide here.
A Kindle edition of the book Peaceful at Heart: Anabaptist Reflections on Healthy Masculinity is also now available. While the print version of the book has been available for some time, readers can now access the book digitally as well. Peaceful at Heart provides a uniquely Anabaptist voice to resource our discussions of healthy masculinity, whether individually or collectively in a book study group. Rather than supporting patriarchy and nationalism commonly advanced in traditional Christian thought, this volume draws on the experiences of various contributors to present an Anabaptist perspective of faith that invites men to experience God's call to live at peace and be peacemakers. Further details and sources for purchasing this resource can be found here.
