Vision Video The Amish: A People of Preservation, DVD

In this colorful, updated documentary, Mennonite historian John Ruth takes us sympathetically into the Amish mindset. Dr. John A. Hostetler, author of Amish Society, comments on the survival of an alternative to the kind of world we have made. As the Amish increase in numbers, some of them migrate from homesteads in Pennsylvania toward more open farmland. Those staying where the land is too crowded to farm have developed an amazing variety of cottage industries. But all such changes are made very carefully, in order not to sacrifice spiritual covenant and community for the sake of convenience. Approx. 54 minutes.

A great presentation of the Amish in community. It was a wonderful surprise to find the DVD's on the Amish. It was great to be able to see them doing a barn raising and how they work together to help each other when a need arises.
