Margaret Loewen Reimer s much-anticipated new edition of One Quilt Many Pieces is an indispensable map of the Anabaptist/Mennonite landscape in Canada. Especially useful are the introductions to the smaller, conservative groups that are less well-known and understood than the visible Old Orders and large national denominations. --Sam Steiner, Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online
A wonderful resource, packed with user-friendly information. U.S. Mennonites should be grateful for this introduction to their northern Mennonite neighbours. --Steven M. Nolt, author
A superb resource. Reimer makes it easy to navigate the maze of Canadian Mennonite groups. A brief history, concise description of key practices, membership numbers, and relevant resources for each group makes this an indispensable handbook. A must-read for anyone interested in the Mennonites of Canada. --Donald B. Kraybill, co-author, Anabaptist World USA
