Praise from Dr. Werner O. Packull


I have a Ph.D in History from the University of Waterloo.

John Smyth's Congregation cover

John Smyth’s Congregation: English Separatism, Mennonite Influence and the Elect Nation

Scottdale, Pa.: Herald Press, 1991, 240 pages.

My doctoral dissertation chronicles the story of an English Separatist congregation which fled to Amsterdam early in the 17th century seeking refuge from persecution in England. From this pivotal congregation sprang both America’s Pilgrim Fathers and the first English Baptists. Some of their number also joined the Mennonites. This congregation wrestled with great theological and ecclesiological questions which are still with us today.

Wonders and the Word cover

Wonders and the Word: An Examination of Issues Raised by John Wimber and the Vineyard Movement

Co-edited with Paul Hiebert, Winnipeg: Kindred Press, 1989, 162 pages.

This collection of essays is now out of print.

I have taught part-time at schools such as Trinity Western University and Columbia Bible College. I am available to teach courses in history and church history in academic and popular settings.
