I have highlighted the stress free lifestyle of the "gentle" Amish and have described their many soul soothing personal qualities along with their religious beliefs, ceremonies, child rearing practices and other aspects of their unique culture.

In sum, this book is concerned with the customs and moral code of the Amish culture as written by those best qualified to do so-myself as a former Old Order Amish sect member along with Amish children and adults who are current participants in the Amish faith. The Amish are a unique, stress free, peace loving community of people living a slow-paced, patient, non violent lifestyle where force and retaliation are replaced by forgiveness and confession. Their daily life is void of the many stresses and strains so evident within the majority culture and research indicates that there is a low rate of depression among members.

While society at large has suffered tremendous personal costs due to the discarding of many traditional, old fashioned, time proven values, the Amish embrace and live by such values seven days a week. Amish leaders continue to question the logic of more technology if it causes the destruction of so many important life qualities. They embrace a primitive technology while living amidst a world with an unbridled zest for progress.

However, they continue to persevere, flourish and experience unprecedented growth. Joe Wittmer, Ph.D.
