Join Doubleday Book Club for a great deal on AMISH GRACE
On October 2, 2006, Charles Roberts killed five Amish students, then he shot himself. “I’m angry at God for taking my little daughter,” he told the children before the massacre.
The blood was barely dry on the schoolhouse floor when the Amish brought forgiveness to Roberts’ widow and children, going beyond talk and graveside presence. They also supported a fund for the shooter’s family. Amish Grace explores the questions this story raises about beliefs that led the Amish to forgive so quickly: How could the Amish do this? What did this act mean to them? How can their witness be useful to the rest of us?
If there’s a situation in your own life where forgiveness comes hard, Amish Grace just might show you the way.
