oldmanchubbAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Community Who Lives Out ForgivenessFebruary 15, 2013oldmanchubbAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In October 2006, a horrible tragedy struck a small community in Lancaster Pennsylvania. A man walked into a one-room school house, taking the lives of 5 young girls, along with his own. School shootings gain the world's attention, however this was a little different, as it involved a very interesting sub-section of American society - the Amish. Most people are fascinated (yet misinformed) as to what the Amish are about and this interest continued as they seemed to respond quite uniquely. Instead of decrying violence, raising the banner for gun control or any other typical reaction we might think of, the Amish responded in offering forgiveness to the gunman's family. They met with them on numerous occasions, praying with them and even giving a portion of the money that poured in to his family. Many outsiders looking in had one big question - why?
Amish Grace seeks to answer that question of why and the three authors do a fantastic job in their exploration of this tragedy and ensuing aftermath of the typical Amish counter-cultural approach to life. Not only that, they explore various aspects to forgiveness in Amish thinking, answering numerous questions we may have as to how this plays out in both daily life and when tragedy strikes. Topics like grace, pardon and reconciliation are treated as well, as these are important aspects to forgiveness. I had questions about the topic of shunning and this was handled to my satisfaction. All of the authors are respected Amish scholars and they treat the subject at hand with great insight and nuance.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about this particular tragedy, Amish life in general or are exploring topics like grace, forgiveness and community.

Tina Smith4 Stars Out Of 5June 5, 2010Tina SmithWonderful book really gives you a insight of the Amish life and forgiveness. I would recommend it to anyone interested in knowing what forgiveness is all about and how God wants us to forgive those who harm us. It is hard but when done with a servants heart it is the right thing to do.
