    Yes, this is a great book! Very respectful and well researched. I talked about it with Cons. Menno. friends and the book made them reflect on forgiveness (and Gelassenheit) in their own life.
    Yes, indeed a great book for everyone!
    Thanks a lot for your blog, Eric.

    Emma, and thank you for reading the blog. Glad you like Amish Grace as well. I actually avoided reading it for awhile as I did not want to go back into the story given its heavy nature. But when I finally did read it I was glad for it. An insightful and thought-provoking examination of forgiveness.

    I am reading it right now. Actually I could have read it in 2 hours but life seems to be getting in the way so I am slowly getting through it.

    The anniversary is only a few short days away. Let’s remember the families in prayer.

    Blessings,
    Dawn

    My library does not have Amish Grace – (I have been a little leery of the book given the subject matter) While shopping the other day, I stopped at a bookstore and the clerk checked the computer and said, “Oh, we only have one copy. Chances are it isn’t here.” My first thought was, “Whew.” As the clerk looked where the computer said it was located, I began hoping it was there as I know there is lots to learn from the book, even though it will be an emotional read, (as some of you have commented). “Nope, the book isn’t here, sorry.” I thanked the clerk and began to walk out of the store when I heard this voice call out, “Wait! Here it is! It was filed in the wrong place!” I will begin reading Amish Grace as soon as I finish House Calls and Hitching Posts (about a doctor who treated the Amish).

    “Amish Grace” was a very different book and experience than the one I thought it would be. It is not ABOUT the Amish, so much as it uses their story to talk about the human experience of struggling with forgiveness. It’s really a book for everyone, and a book to be read slowly and learned from.

  • Susan glad you found it valuable, I did as well. The authors have another book upcoming, called The Amish Way, on Amish spirituality. We’ll be having more on the blog about it soon
