Description

The remarkable response of the Amish community to the horrific shooting of ten schoolgirls at Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania in October 2006 stunned the larger world. Amish Grace tells the incredible story of this community's reaction to the senseless shooting and explores its profoundly countercultural practice of forgiveness.


Outsiders often hold a stereotypical view of the Amish as a stubbornly backwards people-a view rooted in the picturesque images of buggies, beards, and bonnets. But the community's collective and radical act of forgiveness-the loving and compassionate response to the shooter and his family-gives us insights into who the Amish truly are and how they live their faith. In a world where religion spawns so much violence and vengeance, the surprising act of Amish forgiveness begs for deeper consideration.
