      I just finished reading "Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy." I was familiar with the case this book discussed, and have always been fascinated with the Amish. This was a short, but thought provoking, read. I think anyone who has struggled with holding a grudge, resentment, bitterness, and the need to forgive offenses, whether large or. We buy back Amish books often as well, enabling us to add other titles to the collection. These include Rumspringa: To Be or Not to Be Amish; Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy; A Pocket Guide to Amish Life; and Money Secrets of the Amish: Finding True .   Some might dismiss Amish Grace as mawkish soap opera but they would be missing the point of the film. The way the Amish put their beliefs into action is an amazing story. It is a lesson about true humbleness to their faith, at one of the most difficult times in their lives. It makes for an inspiring movie and a totally believable one.
