The Puzzles of Amish Life
The world's leading scholar on the Amish provides a way to understand their intentional way of living in a world far different from their own.
Some questions that are posed:
- Why do the Amish separate themselves from the modern world?
- Why do a religious people spurn religious symbols and church buildings?
- Why is the ownership of cars objectionable, but not their use?
- Why are some forms of electricity acceptable while others are rejected?
This is a fun and educational read.
