The View from the Ninth Decade

This book is one part theological reflection, one part memoir, one part critique of American transportation plus various other observations on this and that.

"Daniel Hertzler’s deep wisdom and dry wit shine through in this delightful book as he reflects upon his thoughtfully lived life. The reader is freed to look at life in fresh ways through this respected church leader’s astute analysis of his own life, the culture around him, and the Bible as it relates to present realities." —Donna Mast, Conference Minister, Allegheny Mennonite Conference

"Those who have read Hertzler’s provocative editorials and articles over the years have come to expect reasoned arguments, sharp wit, candor, biblical studies, and prophetic edge. This memoir does not disappoint." —John Sharp, Author, A School on the Prairie: A Centennial History of Hesston College, 1909-2009

"For decades Dan Hertzler was the dean of Mennonite journalism. Now, with vision undimmed and prose still deft and spare, he looks back on the coordinates of a life well-lived—faith . . . hearth . . . gardening . . . even the value of an inherited shovel." —Wally Kroeker, Editor, The Marketplace

 "Dan has once again offered us words that are modest, truthful, engaging, and wise." —David B. Miller,Associate Professor of Missional Leadership Development, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, in the Foreword

Market: All readers drawn to candid, unvarnished meditations on the journey of life and faith from a veteran editor and writer whose insights continue to inspire thought and sometimes provoke laughter.
