    Book Away ~ "The Amish"

    The question & answer “session” above is very interesting. I believe the Amish have just as many struggles & joys as the rest of us & have adapted their way of life to live as they believe God instructs them to do. I would enjoy very much getting to really know more about them. I look forward to reading the book! Sure would be great to be a winner! Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest.

    Please enter me in this draw. I have been fascinated by the Amish since 1984, when we made our first trip to Shipshewana Indiana. I have been to many other Amish areas, in Canada and the US, and are always surprised by the diversity of these people. I am unfortanuately one of those English, that romantize there way of live, even though I know it can be very tough one at times. I have met many wonderful amish and menonnite people and are very thankful for them letting me into their lives, a making me feel free to ask them questions, about their way of live. This books looks like something I will enjoy, whether I win it or not. Thanks for a wonderful site, Erik. Marie B, Windsor Ontario Canada

    Amish Retention Rates

    It is amazing that the Amish retain 85-95% of their people. I think Evangelicals would do about 20%… I would love to have the book!

    Looking forward to the new book

    The Amish world is so diverse. A book like this will give the latest update on the culture. So many people have a fixed idea of what is Amish and what is not, it will be nice for them to understand that something in a manuscript that they think is “cut and pasted from Wikipedia” is actually Amish fact.

    Non-Amish are so enthralled with the Amish, I wonder if the Amish are just as enthralled with the non-Amish.

    Book giveaway

    I would be thrilled to win “THE AMISH” book giveaway contest.

    I seem to read anything i can get my hands on with respect to the various Plain Communities, be it fiction or nonfiction.

    In the past year or so however, with more and more fiction writers putting their books on the market i think a lot of incorrect info is floating about and reading books buy such knowledgable authors as Nolten, Kraybill and Johnson- Weiner, can help correct many minunderstandings about the Plain folk.

    Comment on Tell me more! (February 17th, 2014 at 15:28)

    Tell me more!

    I became interested in the Amish after reading a couple of fiction books about them. I once bought a book about “bundling” among the Amish, but I have never seen any reference to the practice in any other information I have read. Is bundling practiced among young Amish today? I am trying to learn as much as I can about the Amish from amishamerica.com because I want to learn facts not fiction. I would like a list of recommendation from you, and a list of sources where I can buy them. Thank you.

    • Hi Nancy, glad you found the site. Bundling is at most a minority practice found in more traditional communities. On the youth behavior topic I would recommend Richard Stevick’s book Growing Up Amish, which has a revised edition due out in June of this year. There’s a snippet on bundling from the first edition of that book viewable here: http://books.google.pl/books?id=aRt9p-bwyT0C&q=bundling#v=snippet&q=bundling&f=false

      I’d also recommend the book this post is about, The Amish, and other recommended books you can find at this link. Most will be available from online retailers like Amazon, and some in bookstores in Amish communities: http://amishamerica.com/recommended-amish-resources/

    Knowledge

    I have read a lot of amish fiction. I would like to improve my knowledge of the real amish! So many different religions in the world and I would like to learn the best of as many as I can. I studied comparative religions in college and I feel like a sponge waiting to sop up more. Thanks.
