Product Description

"A separate God? Musingly, I remembered the question of my childhood. We were outsiders now. Perhaps there was no separate God, but only varying degrees of the same God. Perhaps he expected more from some than others." Raised in an Old Order Amish family, Rachel, much like many young girls, dreamed of living a life of joy and freedom. However, her stringent upbringing prevented her from embracing the life she imagined. A Separate God by Lucinda Streiker-Schmidt follows Rachel through her pilgrimage from beneath the shackles of oppression, abuse, and dissatisfaction into the pillar of the liberty of self discovery. After years of reluctantly submitting to their rigid principles, Rachel finally finds the courage to resist the Old Order Amish structure and discover healing from a culture which altered far more than just her appearance and habits. Streiker-Schmidt explores an Amish society more complex than the somber garb they wear and the horse-drawn carriages they use, but one which is as riddled with hypocrisy as the great society-a world Rachel struggled unendingly to adapt to. Lucinda resides in a Midwestern town and maintains close relationships with her family, treasuring time spent with them, and her friends, both secular and Amish. "

    Although this book was interesting since it was based on the true story of the writer, I do not consider this a Christian book. There was nothing in that gave the reader hope that the character turned to God for salvation or studied the Bible for the truth. Instead it had language and topics that are expected in secular books, but not Christian books. I had to throw the book away. It is not God-glorifying reading.

    I found this book hard to put down. Intriguing to the end! Parts of it left me shaking my head. I appreciate the reminders in the prologue that this isn't the norm for the Amish community and it is good to remember there are bad apples in all sects / religions / communities. Thank you for so openly sharing your story! I tend to read Amish fiction but have been branching out. I highly recommend this book. It will not disappoint.

    It was a good book and I usually enjoy all Christian Amish Fiction. I would recommend it to any one who enjoys readng about Amish Life and their beliefs. Especially the ones where the Amish are tryig to decide if Amish Life is right for them and if the worldly people have a separate God as this book did.

    This is a very interesting book. It is more unusual than the other Amish books I've read but I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. I buy all Amish books.
