(Originally published in the April 1957 issue, vol. 12, no. 2, pp. 88-89, 95)

The “Mennonite Bibliography” is published annually in the April issue of Mennonite Life. It contains a list of
books, pamphlets, and articles dealing with Mennonite life, principles and history.
The magazines articles have been restricted to non-Mennonite publications since complete files of Mennonite periodicals, yearbooks, and conference reports are available at the historical libraries of Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas; Goshen College, Goshen, Indiana; Bluffton College, Bluffton, Ohio; and the Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Chicago, IIlinois.
Previous bibliographies published in Mennonite Life appeared annually in the April issues since 1947. Under the heading “Books Received,” we are listing books which do not specifically deal with Anabaptist-Mennonite subjects but are of interest to students of church history and religious movements. Authors and publishers of books, pamphlets and magazines which should be included in our annual list are invited to send copies to Mennonite Life for listing and possible review.
