”Much like the complex and

“Editor Alain Epp Weaver . . . has assembled a score of gifted scholars to contribute insightful and thoughtful essays on the story and program of an institution grappling with some of the most critical issues of the twenty-first century.” —Robert S. Kreider, President Emeritus, Bluffton University and Bethel College, in the Foreword
“This story of MCC is a story of the church in action. It is the story of the church meeting needs of communities around the world, which is why the Mennonite World Conference family has for many years cherished its close and mutual relationship with MCC. As A Table of Sharing shows, the church at its best ministers not only to the spiritual needs of the peoples of the world but also to those needs that many times define, classify, or categorize persons as less privileged and vulnerable.” —Danisa Ndlovu, President, Mennonite World Conference
