Amish Grace

Full Product Description

Praise for "Amish Grace": 'A story our polarized country needs to hear: It is still grace that saves' - Bill Moyers, Public Affairs Television. 'In a world where repaying evil with evil is almost second nature, the Amish remind us there's a better way. In plain and beautiful prose, "Amish Grace" recounts the Amish witness and connects it to the heart of their spirituality' - Sister Helen Prejean, author, "Dead Man Walking". 'Faced with the notorious Amish aversion to publicity, reporter after reporter turned to the answer one question: How could the Nickel Mines Amish so readily, so completely, forgive? While the text provides a detailed account of the tragedy, its beauty lies in its discovery of forgiveness as the crux of Amish culture. Never preachy or treacly, it suggests a larger meditation more than apt in our time' - "Philadelphia Magazine". 'This balanced presentation...blends history, current evaluation of American society, and an examination of what builds community into a seamless story that details the shootings while it probes the religious beliefs that led to such quick forgiving. Recommended' - "Library Journal".'Professors Kraybill, Nolt, and Weaver-Zercher have written a superb book - a model of clear, forceful writing about a tragedy and its aftermath. They have an obvious affection for the Amish yet ask tough questions, weigh contradictions, and explore conundrums such as how a loving God could permit schoolgirls to be massacred' - "National Catholic Reporter".
