About the author:
Stan worked for more than 15 years in management of several large Christian bookstores. His passion was and still is to see quality inspirational books published and distributed, to transform people's lives. The powerful impact on clients and friends has confirmed his belief that "the 26 soldiers of lead" are a powerful tool for transforming society from the inside out.
Since the early 1990's he has worked in the field Information Technology as network engineer, director of technology, and more recently in technology support services. He loves technology because it is capable of transforming a business when implemented correctly. It multiplies the human effort many times over.
Good books have that same effect as technology, transforming the human heart, causing it to soar from reading an inspirational novel, causing it to expand by learning from an informational text, and bringing correction to our wayward hearts when we most need it.
Stan has a Bachelor's degree in Organizational Studies from Bethel University and a Master's in Education from Northern Arizona University. Stan and his wife reside in Phoenix, Arizona. They have three adult children, two in education and one in electrical engineering.
Abraham P Harder - The Legacy
Stanley M Harder
"Abraham P Harder - The Legacy" is the story of one European family, of many ethnic origins, pioneering across three continents. It's a story of faith carrying them through persecution, disease, intrigues of government, physical violence and deprivation.
Transforming the southern Ukraine into the breadbasket of Russia, the Mennonites struggle to live out their faith in rapidly changing Czarist Russia. The political strife of 19th century St Petersburg and the aristocracy compels many Mennonite families to make a costly decision to emigrate.
The story becomes personal as they arrive in the U.S. to contend with drought, dust storms, and the demands of homesteading. Can they find a place to raise a family; will they be able to build a community of faith wherever they settle?
Written with extensive endnotes and bibliographic references, it provides useful leads for novice Mennonite family researchers.
