Description Technical Specs
 
The shooting of the school children at Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, in October 2006, horrified the nation, but the way the Amish offered forgiveness and grace to the murderer's family was in some ways even more baffling.  Amish Grace  tells the story of the Amish response to the shooting and explores their profoundly countercultural practice of forgiveness.  The book explores the many questions the story raises about the religious beliefs that led the Amish to forgive so quickly.  Regardless of the cultural seedbed that nourished this story, the surprising act of Amish forgiveness begs for deeper consideration, especially in a world wracked with vindictiveness and vengeance.
