This site, currently under construction, aspires to be the most complete resource available on topics related to martyrdom, costly discipleship, and the challenge of memory among groups in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition.  Although a significant portion of the site focuses on the ''Martyrs Mirror'', topics included here move well beyond that important text to include a growing collection of [[Bearing Witness|'''individual stories''']] and a host of themes relevant to the broader Christian church.  If you are interested in participating in a conversation about the idea of updating the ''Martyrs Mirror'' follow this [[Talk:Martyrs Mirror Wiki|'''link''']].  While you're here, take some time to explore the Global Anabaptist Wiki and become a contributor! Like all wiki-based projects, this is a collaborative venture that relies on the local expertise of many people.

The "Online Anabaptist-Mennonite Library," currently under construction, provides users with full-text primary sources of official church statements in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition, along with links to a host of other primary sources. The site has the possibility of expanding to include a wide range of additional texts.  If you are interested in partnering with us to help build this site, please contact John D. Roth (johndr@goshen.edu).

This site, currently under construction, offers a window into the relatively recent involvement of Mennonite (and Anabaptist-related groups) in ecumenical engagements of various sorts.  Some expressions of Mennonite ecumenicity have emerged in response to formal invitations from other Christian groups seeking a "healing of memory" in light of the conflict that surrounded our origins in the 16th century. Other ecumenical encounters have been more informal--lay initiatives seeking deeper understanding and reconciliation at a local level. This site provides access to bibliographic information on Anabaptist-Mennonite ecumenical involvements, texts of working papers and formal statements, an overview of the emerging reception history and links to other resources.  Please add additional relevant information based on your own interest and expertise!

The purpose of the [[Anabaptist Dictionary of the Bible]] (ADB) is to reflect (and to reflect critically on) an Anabaptist approach to the reading of the Bible. The ADB is intended to serve those in the Anabaptist traditions as well as to be a respectful conversation partner with those in other Christian traditions as authors give voice to an appreciatively critical Anabaptist perspective. It is a Bible dictionary wiki project with an Anabaptist flavor.

The [[:Anabaptistwiki:About|'''Global Anabaptist Wiki''']] is an interactive community of Anabaptist-Mennonite groups from around the world. Initiated by the [http://www.goshen.edu/mhl Mennonite Historical Library] at [http://www.goshen.edu/ Goshen College], the site is committed to helping individual groups: 1) tell their own [[Anabaptistwiki:Stories|stories]]; 2) post and preserve electronic archives; and 3) become better informed about other groups in the global Anabaptist fellowship. Like all wiki-based projects, this is a collaborative venture that relies on the local expertise of many people.
