Reviews - What do customers think about Dancing With the Kobzar: Bluffton College and Mennonite Higher Education, 1899-1999 (Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History, 38)?
Bluffton College, not to shabby, eh? Apr 3, 2001
Dancing With the Kobzar is definitely the best book that I have ever read from the "Studies in the Anabaptist and Mennonite History" series. It takes the history of a small Mennonite college in NW Ohio, and actually makes it into interesting read. Not only that, but a clear thesis and structure are presented at the beginning of the work and never once does the author stray away from these. That, along with the books transitions, makes the piece flow together as if it was a New York Times bestseller. Finally, the masterpiece of the book is the index. It seems to have been put together by a genius, and allows for any scholar to find the information that he needs almost instantaneously. A must read for any BC alumni or scholars of the Mennonite religion.
