From the Back Cover: Praise for Amish Grace
"A story our polarized country needs to hear: It is still grace that saves."
—Bill Moyers, Public Affairs Television
"Amish Grace tells a story of forgiveness informed by deep faith, rooted in a rich history, and practiced in real life. In an American society that often resorts to revenge, it is a powerful example of the better way taught by Jesus."
—Jim Wallis, author, God's Politics; president, Sojourners/Call to Renewal
"In a world where repaying evil with evil is almost second nature, the Amish remind us there's a better way. In plain and beautiful prose, Amish Grace recounts the Amish witness and connects it to the heart of their spirituality."
—Sister Helen Prejean, author, Dead Man Walking
"An inside look at a series of events that showed the world what Christ-like forgiveness is all about ? a story of the love of God lived out in the face of tragedy."
—Tony Campolo, Eastern University
"Amish Grace dissects the deep-rooted pattern of Amish forgiveness and grace that, after the Nickel Mines tragedy, caused the world to gasp."
—Philip Yancey, author, What's So Amazing About Grace
"Covers the subject in a superb way. It gave me a private tutorial in Amish culture and religion ? on their unique view of life, death, and forgiveness."
—Fred Luskin, author, Forgive for Good; director, Stanford Forgiveness Projects
"A remarkable book about the good but imperfect Amish, who individually and collectively consistently try to live Jesus' example of love – for one another and for the enemy."
—Dr. Carol Rittner, distinguished professor of holocaust and genocide studies, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey
"A casebook on forgiveness valuable for ALL Christians. It drills beneath the theory to their practice and even deeper to the instructions of Jesus."
—Dr. Julia Upton, provost, St. John's University
