Healing Haunted Histories:

A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization

In their latest book, Healing Haunted Histories: A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization, Elaine Enns and Ched Myers take on the “ghosts” of settler colonialism, Indigenous displacement, and white supremacy that can be found in many of our family histories — if only we have the courage to look for them.

Available for pre-order now (with delivery in February 2021), this 400-page book is equal parts:

  • memoir (mostly focusing on Enns’ Mennonite family and community, who endured the Russian Civil War, fled the Soviet aftermath and settled on Indigenous land in Saskatchewan in the 1920s);  
  • social analysis;
  • theological reflection; and
  • workbook for those ready to “do their own work.”

SPECIAL DISCOUNT: For a limited time, friends of Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries can order the softcover edition of Healing Haunted Histories from Wipf & Stock for a 25% discount when you join our mailing list >> DETAILS HERE
