This handbook serves as a quick reference guide for brief accounts of events that happened along the historical thread of more than 200 years relating to the development of the Mennonite church in the United States of America.

Mennonite Handbook of Information is a must-have for those interested in Reformation history. With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Mennonite Handbook of Information are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your Logos library, making these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “evangelization” or “Matthew 5:3.”
