New Recipes from Quilt Country : More Food & Folkways from the Amish & Mennonites

From Library Journal
The follow-up to Adams's popular Cooking from Quilt Country (1989) offers more stories and simple recipes from Amish and conservative Mennonite communities across the country, providing a sometimes surprisingly intimate look into the lives of these private people. The recipes are grouped by time of day, with "Good Morning" chapters, for example, titled "Baking Day" and "The School Lunch Bucket"; some of the readable instructions focus on a particular family or activity, others on customs or topics like "Growing Up Amish." Most of the recipes are for hearty, homey fare, from frugal cooks used to feeding lots of people. Because both the Amish and the Mennonites are known for their baked goods, there are lots of delicious cookies, pies, and breads here. The companion volume to Adams's new PBS series, this is...

From Publishers Weekly
In Myer's disappointing 14th mystery to star Mennonite hotelier Magdalena Yoder (after 2005's Assault and Pepper), Felicia Bacchustelli, a long-legged glamour-puss, arrives in Hernia, Pa., and announces plans to open a spa that will put Magdalena's PennDutch Inn out of business. When Felicia gets herself murdered, Magdalena is suspect "numero uno"—so to save her own hide and satisfy her endless curiosity, our heroine sets out to finger the real killer. Magdalena has never seemed more annoying, or her penchant for attracting sexy bachelors never more perplexing. The recipes shoehorned between chapters are superfluous. And when the real killer confesses, the solution seems improbable rather than surprising. (Feb.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights...

From Library Journal
Eleven years ago, while still a college student, Williams, who had become intrigued by the Amish as "a living link between a simpler time" and the hectic world of today, asked Coblentz to write a newspaper column he had envisioned about life in an Amish community. Today, her syndicated monthly column appears nationwide in more than 100 newspapers. This book is not just a compilation of the columns and recipes, however; Williams begins with his and Coblentz's story, than follows with a chapter on the history of the Amish. He has organized the recipes by meal, from breakfast to supper, with separate sections on dessert and on Sundays and special occasions. Each chapter contains history and background from Williams, comments and reminiscences from Coblentz, and some of her original columns, as well as ...

From Publishers Weekly
A 16-year-old rebels against the conventions of her strict Mennonite community and tries to come to terms with the collapse of her family in this insightful, irreverent coming-of-age novel. In bleak rural Manitoba, Nomi longs for her older sister, Tash ("she was so earmarked for damnation it wasn't even funny"), and mother, Trudie, each of whom has recently fled fundamentalist Christianity and their town. Her gentle, uncommunicative father, Ray, isn't much of a sounding board as Nomi plunges into bittersweet memory and grapples with teenage life in a "kind of a cult with pretend connections to some normal earthly conventions." Once a "curious, hopeful child" Nomi now relies on biting humor as her life spins out of control—she stops attending school, shaves her head and wanders around in a marijuana-induced...

From Publishers Weekly
This unique and rewarding collection brings together for the first time an enticing harvest of poems by writers connected to an ethnic religious tradition dating back to 1525. Skillfully edited with attention to balance and variety, this highly readable book includes work from award-winning writers in the United States and Canada as well as surprising and accomplished new voices. As scholar Ervin Beck notes, "A Cappella invites the outsider to eavesdrop on a new community of poets." Lyrical, provocative, and sometimes funny, these poems question orthodoxy and find beauty in unexpected places-from the earthy farm rituals of northern Minnesota farm life in Jean Janzen's "Chicken Guts," to the frontiers of cyberspace in David Waltner-Toews's "Teilhard de Chardin Surfs the Internet." Anna Ruth Ediger Baehr transforms...


Crossing Over: One Woman's Escape from Amish Life
Ruth Irene Garrett

Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Garrett lifts the veil from one of the most private, most fascinating Christian sects, the Amish. The fifth of seven children, she grew up in Kalona, Iowa, as a member of the strict Old Order Amish, who owned no motor vehicles and went without electricity and telephones. Unthinkably for an Old Order Amish young woman, she fell in love with an outsider 15 years her senior. Worse, he was divorced, and wedding him was equivalent to adultery in the eyes of the Amish. But leaving the order was her most serious offense, and for it she suffered the severe consequence of being shunned by her home community. Garrett is exceedingly honest, unafraid to criticize what she considers rigid and hypocritical in Amish behavior. Her subsequent life among "the English," as the low German-speaking Amish call outsiders, makes a wonderful tale...

—Donald B. Kraybill, Messiah College
"These path-breaking essays make a stellar contribution to the scholarship of gender roles in contemporary Anabaptist communities."

Review
"Strangers at Home makes a major contribution to our understanding of Anabaptist history and the ongoing construction of Anabaptist identity. Moreover, in investigating the role of religion and ethnicity in framing the choices available to individuals and communities, the essays in Strangers at Home consider the historical construction of gender in Anabaptist cultures in the larger context of women's history and, in so doing, question assumptions about the field of women's history itself." -- Karen M. Johnson-Weiner, Mennonite Quarterly Review
"Amish and Mennonite women occupy a unique niche in rural America, and...

Book Description
In recent years, religion- and culture-based approaches to conflict resolution have been implemented at both the local and regional level. The U.S. State Department, the U.S. Institute of Peace, and other governmental agencies now recognize that religious leaders, transnational religious
movements, and faith-based NGOs are central players in the post Cold War era of ethnic and religious conflict.
Through the Mennonite Central Committee and its International Conciliation Service, the Mennonites have been the leaders in this emerging area of expertise. This collection of essays chronicles, analyzes, and evaluates the Mennonite contribution to the new cultural paradigm in conflict resolution
and peacebuilding theory and practice. Here, essayists provide a thorough account of Mennonite initiatives to prevent,...
