In this engagingly offbeat and often humorous memoir, Hertzler tells of his editing years, his larger life story, and how his theological and philosophical positions have come to place him just "a little left of center."

From the Back Cover:

"What a fascinating glimpse into the life and times of a respected editor in the Mennonite Church! Along the way we get an insider's view on church politics, wry comments matters large and small, funny anecdotes, and theological musings. I probably averaged two chuckles a page." --Steve Shenk, Director of Communications, Eastern Mennonite University Harrisonburg, Virginia

"Here Dan Hertzler tells about life--his life, congregational life, and institutional life in the Mennonite Church. In his offhand yet direct style, Hertzler lets us in on the fascinating, occasionally messy, yet richly rewarding story of his adventures from a Depression farm boy to the inner reaches of the Mennonite Church." --Wayne North, Retired Pastor, Harrisonburg, Virginia

"Dan mentored a generation of us into writing for denominational publications and hence into deeper commitments to the church, thereby extending his editorial impact beyond what any one person could accomplish alone." --Keith Graber Miller, Professor of Bible, Religion, and Philosophy, Goshen College, Goshen, Indiana

"Wryly Hertzler admits that `editorials, like sermons and the evening news, are eminently forgettable,' yet he hopes his editorials may have moved readers along. This book will also move readers along in understanding Mennonite journalism." --Katie Funk Wiebe, Professor Emerita, Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kansas
