On October 2, 2006, a thirty-two-year-old gunman entered a one-room Amish school in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, killing five girls, and critically wounding five others. Before that day was over, the members of the Amish community brought words of forgiveness to the family of the gunman. This book explores the many questions this story raises about the religious beliefs and habits that led the Amish to forgive so quickly. What did this act mean to them and how might their story provide lessons for the rest of us? (288pp. Jossey-Bass, 2007.)
