the Prize Winning Story

By Ken Yoder Reed

In the words of Vladdy, the freewheeling talk show host and main character of the novel:
“ I’m just an ex-hippie who loves the Messiah and his people, the Jews . . . leading my 15th tour of the Holy Land. Which turns out to be a tour like no other. First off, I land Major Eli, a Jew-Jew--he practices, eats kosher--and he’s Israel’s top counter-terrorist, as our licensed guide around Israel. The story-telling contest and $5,000 prize? That’s Eli’s idea. My pilgrims bubble up wonderful stories!
But for the first time, the Palestinians trouble me. ‘What about the Palestinians?’ It drives a wedge between me and my friend. Where did Eli disappear to? The TV headlines coming out of the violent Gaza Strip—could that be Eli?”

He Flew Too High

By Ken Yoder Reed

Saul MacNamara believes God is telling him his work is evil. He leaves his career as a Korean War nuclear bombing strategist with moral support from the Mennonites and Bishop Krehbiel, their leader. He marries the Bishop's daughter and falls in love with her pacifist Mennonite community. However, Saul quickly grows disillusioned because he believes 1950s prosperity has lulled the Mennonites into a dangerous sleep. He'll lead a mighty revival of their faith and values and prevent the community's otherwise certain destruction. But the bishop draws a line in the sand against the unauthorized meetings and reforms. If Saul steps across, will he lose this community? His wife and family? Even the voice of God in his life? He Flew Too High tells the story of one man's quest to bring an awakening to a reluctant people. If you like suspense stories with a strong spiritual undercurrent such as The Shack or This Present Darkness, this book is for you!

Mennonite Soldier

By Ken Yoder Reed

Mastie and Ira Stoltzfus, Mennonite brothers in Lancaster, Pa., face the draft in World War I. Ira chooses the traditional Mennonite position of conscientious objection to war. Mastie, on the other hand, joins the Army and is excommunicated from the church. As the story shifts back and forth between Ira and Mastie, you will be caught up in a powerful examination of love and war, duty and conscience, and the starkly different experiences of two boys from the same Mennonite home. This classic retelling of the prodigal son story set in World War I America includes a thoughtful foreword essay on Mennonites and the military by Professor Joel Hartman of the University of Missouri. Reprinted so a whole new generation can enjoy!
