“Brimming with many children,” write the authors of The Amish Way, “most Amish homes produce eight or more sets of dirty dishes three times a day. That means at least twenty-four glasses, dozens of plates, and countless pieces of silverware, not to mention pots, pans, mixing bowls, platters, and serving utensils.” Yet you won’t find […]

What an informative interview/discussion. I am in awe of the strong commitments and bonds of the Amish. I appreciate the information provided in this interview. It helps me to see more clearly, their views on the Bible and Bible study, what the “Amish” term refers to and it’s markers, and why there is such a high percentage of youths that stay in their community and become Baptized. I hope and pray that I win this book because I would truly love to learn more about the Amish Way of life
Please do include me in the giveaway. I really enjoy your blog.
Being a small farmer in Iowa and having Amish friends and neighbors has given me an insider look into the “Amish Way”. The discussion above is absolutely accurate from my experience. I would love to win the book in order to gain more information that I would not ever ask my dear friends lest I embarras them or myself in the process. Thanks for all your good work.
Enjoyed the second part of the interview. I have often wondered why some communities are so encouraging to outsiders to seriously seek the Amish the faith, and others discourage it. It would make an interesting study.
Please enter me in the contest for the book.
your book seems incredible and can’t wait to read it….i just returned from a vacation in lancaster county and really want to learn more.

Nice article! Thanks for posting.
Excellent post! I love your website, and I would love to win this book. Like a previous poster, I am puzzled by the fact that some Amish communities would turn away a potential convert (though the “trial period” adopted by others makes perfect sense). Are they afraid that allowing “outsiders” in would dilute their culture, or have they had bad experiences with would-be converts in the past? It would be interesting to find out.
Please enter me in the contest. Thank you.

Hi Erik I love your website and I thoroughly enjoy listening to you when you are on Amish Wisdom with Suzanne. Your article is very profound and I hope that you continue to write in your blog.

I am blessed to have a few good amish friends, even though I am “English”. As a seeker of a life more grounded in the Bible and less wordly, the amish actually guided me to the Conservative Mennonites. They thought this would be an easier transition. Now, as a mennonite for the last few years, with plain dress, no TV, minimal outside influences, I have found that there is no going back. I feel closer to God than I have ever been. No distractions…it is a blessed life. I am greatful to my amish friends for helping me start this journey.
I have always been intrigued with the Amish way of life. Found this post while helping my 9 year old search for facts about the Amish for a project she is doing. Would love to win this book!
Great article about the Amish. I go to college at Ashland University (which is on the brink of Ohio Amish Country). Loved the insight this gave me to understand more about their ways and lifestyle!
I am a Hutterite and last night got the oppertunity to watch Amish grace, I really liked it there were a few scenes which I don’t think they protrayed properly but overall it probably would get a few people interested in the real facts of the amish shooting that happened in nickle mines. Please include me in your draw it would be nice to know the true differances between the Amish and the hutterites. Thank you
very informative interview. I will look for the first part. I do think there is something to be said for the high rate of baptism into the Amish faith by Amish young people, especially given that many went through a running around period and sampled a bit of the outside (Englischer) way of life.
Cant wait! What a great birthday present!
I just love to read your articles. Think the Amish take us back to simpler times but more than that they put an emphasis on important values. Please enter me in your contest.
Thanks all for your great comments! 10 winners to come tomorrow, but you can still enter until then!
Great interview. I’m a big fan of all three author’s and look forward to reading this study.
How interesting. I try to apply basic Amish-like principles to my life like slowing down and approaching God more in the midst of everyday life. It seems to be O.K.

I have been in touch with an Amishperson
and they ask me if I was Amish. I explained to them about Amish ancestory and said my heart is Amish and I love the Lord. Am interested in joining into their way of believing but have never heard back on how I could begin that. will they not answer me because I am not Amish?
Thank you for all your info. Great work!
