Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0878137629, Paperback)

Growing up in a Mennonite village in Russia, Knals Plett understood the importance of a close-knit community. But in spite of faith and conviction, he was a man who could sometimes be harsh and inconsiderate, a trait that threatened to tear his world apart. By the grace of God he led his people across the cold Atlantic to settle in a New World, but he didn't know how to cross the dark emotional sea that lay before him now. His son, his own flesh and blood, had left their church for another. And in this time of crisis, his old obstinate ways were churning this divide into a storm. Was he too old to change? Based on historical accounts, Crossing the Distance is the story of great distances, some created by God and others by man. It offers hope that, by God's grace, we also can cross divides in our lives.
