Forgiveness: A Legacy of the West Nickel Mines Amish School - John L. Ruth

Forgiveness: A Legacy of the West Nickel Mines Amish School

John L. Ruth

  • 1099


This sensitive and thoughtful meditation on the horrific events of October 2, 2006, reflects on the response of the Amish community of Nickel Mines, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where a gunman killed himself, five school children, and wounded five others. The tragic crime evoked expressions of shock and sympathy worldwide. But many were stunned when the Amish community offered words of forgiveness toward the killer and his family. (159pp. illus. Herald Press, 2007.)
