Publisher's Summary

A sensitive and realistic look at the spiritual life and practices of the Amish.

This second book by the authors of the award-winning Amish Grace sheds further light on the Amish, this time on their faith, spirituality, and spiritual practices. They interpret the distinctive practices of the Amish way of life and spirituality in their cultural context and explore their applicability for the wider world.

Using a holistic perspective, the book tells the story of Amish religious experience in the words of the Amish themselves. Due to their long-standing friendships and relationships with Amish people, this author team may be the only set of interpreters able to provide an outsider-insider perspective. This book:

  • Provides a behind-the-scenes examination of Amish spiritual life
  • Expains how Amish practices can be applied to the wider world

Written by authors with unprecedented access to the Amish community and in a lively and engaging style, The Amish Way will appeal to anyone who has wanted to know more about the inner workings of the Amish way of life.
