Since I live close to a large Amish community, I am always interested in reading more about them and learning about their culture. I recently read The Heart of the Amish: Life Lessons on Peacemaking and the Power of Forgiveness by Suzanne Woods Fisher, and I really enjoyed it. The book had a few short stories that tell stories of forgiveness that actually happened in the Amish or Mennonite communities. This book had very compelling stories that really make you think about your own life and capacity for forgiveness.
Since there are Bible scriptures mentioned after each story, I think this would be a great book to read as a type of Bible Study with friends or family. It would be something that you could discuss with others, and they are short enough stories that they could easily be ready on a weekly basis. I am definitely planning to share this book with some of my family members so they can enjoy it as much as I did.
