This book explores the guiding vision of MBBC as it was conceived in the early 1940s and as it evolved and became an issue of intense disagreement and conflict through the years. MBBC was the main program supported by the Canadian Mennonite Brethren conference during the college’s existence (1944-1992), and, as such, its story reflects the theology, worship, and polity of the conference during those years.
