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.

    This was an excellent book. It allows you to understand why the Amish have taken a stand on some issues where we just assume they are behind the times. For example, it's not that they are against telephones, they just understand that once they have a phone in the house, they will be using it all the time and spending lots of time gossiping with neighbors thereby giving them less time with family and God. It's a book that give you a lot to think about.
