Family Matters is an excellent resource for anyone new to the U.S. Mennonite Brethren family and is recommended reading for those attending the biennial National Pastors Orientation. It begins with the origins of the Mennonite Brethren Church, including a brief look at where Mennonite Brethren fit into church history, and then describes our theological distinctives. The book concludes with a look at the North American Mennonite Brethren story. While this section is no longer up to date, it provides a helpful introduction to Mennonite Brethren ministries worldwide and to the inter-Mennonite agencies with which we partner. Authors are Lynn Jost of Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary and Connie Faber, Christian Leader editor.
