Item Description...
This collection of excerpts from the monthly 'Family Life' gives a taste of the reading material found in Old Order homes across North America. On topics ranging from child-rearing to war and peace, to aging and death_Amish writers reveal their perception of larger society, their interpretation of history, and their view of their own church. Letters from subscribers and essays from articulate Amish editors show the contours of an Old Order worldview. We find communities shaped by concern for tradition and faithfulness, lives molded by homespun proverbs and practical custom.

Publishers Description
Why another book about the Amish? Each year brings academic studies and personal reflections on Amish friends. Here you can read what the Amish say about you themselves.

Brad Igou offers writings by Amish people across North America, compiled from the first 25 years (1968-92) of Family Life, a monthly Amish magazine. He includes letters, articles, history lessons, parables, questions, challenges -- a wide spectrum of human experience, from an Amish point of view.

Sixteen chapters cover fascinating topics such as shunning, nonresistance, clothing, youth activities, old age, conflicts with the modem world, Amish beginnings, controversies, education, work, church, mutual aid, food, humor, and lessons from life.

You will understand, think, laugh, cry, and be touched in a personal way by a people focused on living for God. These humble folk write with simple directness. Open this book and explore the unique world of the Amish, their history, their church community, their challenges, joys, and sorrows, as only they can tell it -- in their own words.

From the Heart  Oct 6, 2007
You will find this book engaging on several planes. There is a Sadness and a Joy, a Quaintness and a Moderninity. And don't be too surprised if you find yourself thinking there is a little Amish hidden inside yourself.
The Amish  Sep 16, 2007
How better to learn about the ways and lifestyle of the Amish than from their own words? Very informative and interesting! I feel all books are priced too high though and for that reason I am giving only four stars!
Honest look inside  Dec 23, 2005
We drove into Lancaster Cnty. yesterday to "see the Amish." I picked this book up (for a bit more than it is offered here at this site) and breezed right through. It is interesting - to say the least - and quite provocative. It debunks many of the idealized stereotypes I had of the Amish and portrays them as 'normal' people who have deliberately (and sometimes not deliberately) chosen a very separate Christian walk. Very inspiring, too. Highly recommend this for anyone interested in the Amish & Mennonites as well as all born-again believers in Christ.
The Amish in Their Own Words........  Jun 16, 2001
Beautifully gathered stories of home life and community in the Amish settlements. Enjoyed them alland the reflections they gave. Like a quilt of people put together I enjoyed this very much.
The best of Family Life  Aug 20, 2000
Incredible! Brad Igou presents the best of 25 years of Family Life magazine and in doing so gives the rest of us an insight into the thinking, daily joys and trails of the Amish people. Yes, let them speak for themselves. They do it so well!
