    Higher retention in more conservative groups

    My current non-fiction book, Amish Reader, explores some of the differences even within communities. This is democracy in action with bi-annual open forums held after church service for the baptised.

    Hi Richard, sounds like an interesting book, what communities did you research in?

      My books

      All my books are sold out and I will not reprint. At 78 years old, I’m cutting back on activity. Writing is the easy and fun part of publishing. Marketing is the hardest—as you well know. I have your book.
      I still do PowerPoint talks, and get hired as a step on guide to 5 southeast WI Amish communities as day trips to spread the word as to who the REAL AMISH are.

    Amish Reader

    I’d be interested in more details of this book, Amish Reader, which Richard E Dawley posted on June 13th 2011. I realise it’s 6 months ago, but I’ve only recently begun to read this site in detail. Many thanks. Fran

      Amish Reader book

      Fran Hedrick,
      Sorry I’m also late answering your comment. I do not watch facebook regularly. All my Amish REader books are sold out, as well as all the other 7 books I wrote about my experiences with the Amish, Mennonites, and Hutterites.
      I still make talks to groups, and am a step-on-guide for groups that get the bus. I have 5 settlements in SE Wisconsin that enjoy my tours.

    I reread the Andy Weaver / Dan Church Amish article again, and an odd question struck me. Well, I thought it was odd. Is Mister Andy Weaver still alive today? Is he still involved in the leadership of his community?
    I thought maybe since he was active in the 1950s he’d have a chance of still being around today as a reasonably elderly man.

    Not sure I ever read this article before.
    I have a friend that is a memeber of the Dan May Church (Andy Weaver Church) I find it interesting how critical they can be towards the Swartzentrubers when in essence they are truly not that different…very slight differences. The better part is when I have stayed with them for a couple days then go to my Old Order Friends and how modern it seems things are at the OOA home!!
    The one thing I thought was laughable was that the Dan May can not believe that the Swartz would use kerosene laterns…yet…the DM use Solvents to cook with…light the home…more flammable than kerosene!!
