In this colorful, award-winning PBS documentary, Mennonite historian John Ruth takes us sympathetically into the Amish mindset.
To the outside world, the Amish are an old-fashioned culture that refuses to be part of the modern world. This informative documentary discusses their culture, history, faith and the differences within the Amish culture. It is an enlightening and delightful look at this mild-mannered people who are good neighbors, faithful and love their families.The Amish are a people of preservation: they have preserved their God-loving ways and culture through centuries of world change. They have remained close to their roots. This is a wonderful documentary and we award it the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal of approval for all ages.
