Two of our Book Shop’s current best-selling books are Light of the World and Kroeger Clocks. Light of the World is the story of long-time missionaries Ben and Helen Eidse as told by their daughter, Faith Eidse. They were the first missionaries sent overseas by the Evangelical Mennonite Conference. The book is available for $20.00.

Kroeger Clocks

is a paperback coffee-table book with a lot of information on the history of Kroeger Clocks, a generous serving of Mennonite history, and many pictures of these vintage timepieces. This book was recently listed on the McNally Robinson Best-Sellers List. It is available in the Book Shop for $29.99. Both of these books would make great Christmas gifts.
