Letters of the Amish Division:
A Sourcebook

Edited by John D. Roth

This collection of primary sources represents a significant advance in our understanding of the events that led to the painful division between the Amish and Mennonites in the last decade of the 17th century.

A fresh translation of 19 key documents along with an introductory essay that sets the context for a deeper understanding the sources. The book also includes several appendixes, a scripture index and a name/subject index.

The most complete collection of these documents is now available in a clearly formatted and readable form.

Of interest to researchers, genealogists and anyone interested in knowing more about the beginnings of the Amish church.

Proceedings of the
Amish Ministers' Meetings 1862-1878

By Paton Yoder and Steven R. Estes

This volume--the fruit of more than a decade of careful research--offers the first complete translation of the minutes of a series of meetings (Dienerversammlungen) by leaders in the Amish church during the last half of the nineteenth century. The translation provide a remarkable window into the spiritual life, thought and struggles of the Amish church as it wrestles to maintain unity in the face of difficult issues of doctrine and life. The subject index, for example, includes entries on such themes as: church letters, church polity, dress, drunkenness, worldly entertainment, interest on loans, marriage outside the church, military service, parental duties, and many, many more.

Also included in the volume are:

  • biographical summaries of all 253 bishops, ministers and deacons who attended the sessions
  • dozens of photographs of Amish and Amish-Mennonite leaders
  • maps, appendices and indexes
