  • 1000

This book connects specific Amish family stories with broader Anabaptist migration experiences while exploring the spiritual meaning of ancestral remembrance. Stories from the Mast, Troyer, Stutzman, and Hochstetler families in Europe and America—along with their larger familial and spiritual networks—illustrate how faith practices are expressed and passed along in Anabaptist and Amish traditions. Some of the colorful characters depicted in these stories are Elizabeth Meyli, Jacob Hochstetler, “White” Jonas Stutzman, Daniel Mast, and Fannie Swartzentruber. (114pp. illus. Masthof Press, 2020.)
