Most people wouldn’t use the word diverse to describe the Amish.
America’s enchantment with the Amish – in romance novels and on reality television – has left many wondering what Amish life is really like. A new book, co-written by Goshen College Professor of History Steve M. Nolt, looks to dispel myths and document Amish life across North America.
Goshen College Professor of History Steve Nolt will present an Afternoon Sabbatical lecture on “The Amish Way: Patient Faith in a Perilous World” on Tuesday, March 12 at 1 p.m. in the Goshen College Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall.
In recent months, current and former Goshen College faculty have authored new books and chapters in new books.
Goshen College Professors of History Steven M. Nolt and John D. Roth contributed essays to the book, “The Activist Impulse: Essays on the Intersection of Evangelicalism and Anabaptism.”
The Amish response to the murders of five schoolgirls in Nickel Mines, Pa., last Oct. 2 was even more surprising than the intrusion of evil into bucolic Lancaster County.
