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.
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.
