Suzanne Woods Fisher in her new book, “Heart Of The Amish book coverThe Heart Of The Amish” published by Revell gives us Life Lessons on Peacemaking and the Power of Forgiveness.

From the back cover:  We have all been hurt and we all have someone we need to forgive. But sometimes it’s hard to let go of our hurt and anger in order to truly forgive and move on.

For the Amish, forgiving others in order to live at peace is woven into the very fabric of their faith. From daily annoyances to heartbreaking tragedy, they exhibit an incredible capacity for forgiveness that often baffles us. How do they do it? And how can we have the same attitude and ability to forgive?

Through true stories gathered from a variety of Amish communities, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher shows you how the Amish are able to release their pain and desire for revenge, and live at peace with others. Her in-depth, personal research uncovers the astounding yet fundamental way the Amish can forgive anyone from the angry customer at the grocery store to the shooter at Nickel Mines. You’ll learn how to invite God into your story, apply lessons from the Amish to your own circumstances, and find the freedom that comes with true forgiveness.

In “The Heart Of The Amish”Ms. Fisher has given us a study in forgiveness. In two parts:  Part One:  Everyday Friction and Part Two:  Turning Points Ms. Fisher provides us twenty-six stories of what real people went through and how they were able to forgive both others and themselves. Every one of us, whether we are Amish or not, suffers hurt and we need to forgive if we are to move on and grow. It can be done. It is not easy, however The Holy Spirit is there to help and guide us. This book will provide inspiration.
