not even imagine what they went through and are still dealing with today.They live what they believe, not like the majority of us that say something and then when hard times come we fall apart and cave in instead of standing strong on our faith.

I live in Pennsylvania and this story was hard to miss in the news when it occurred. At the time, I thought it was just another tragedy until I read R.A. Clark's book, "When God Stopped Keeping Score" that showed how the gift of forgiveness that came afterwards transcended the tragedy. I applaud this author's effort to help showcase this story because not only is it worthy of telling so that it never happens again, it also helps people understand what could push a person to that point to begin with.

This is a story of how the Amish forgive just like Jesus intended.

Like most of the world, I was in shock when the news of what happened became public knowledge. My husband and I know a few Amish people. We used to go to a camp for kids with Muscular Dystrophy and two of the boys there were Amish. My husband was their "buddy" for the week of summer camp for MDA. We became friends with their family and have spent many wonderful days in their home. The two boys have both died since that time but we continue to visit when we can. I am certainly no expert on the entire Amish lifestyle but a lot of what was in this book appears to agree with what we have found out over time. They are wonderful people and this book gives major insight in to their lifestyle and who they are. It wasn't what I was expecting but ended up being so much more.

It is very easy to hate, unfortunately. Having the Heavenly Grace to forgive even the vilest of deeds is more than accomplishment; it is inspired grace. The authors weave a worthwhile story of community, bed-rock faith, and truly 'walking the walk' of faith. Great read!

I loved this book! It was inspirational! It will make you think about your own beliefs on forgiveness.I was given more insight to the Amish and their religious beliefs.

This beautiful true story is written well and you can almost feel the sadness and yet you can also feel the forgiveness with this book. I am not done with the book yet but only have two chapters left and I have only had the book for 4 days. It was a very tragic event that the amish turned into forgiveness as only they do it seems.

It is so simple, as they have chosen to live there lives perhaps living simple staying small and not allowing the world to rule them has made it possible, by living it day by day! They have in fact embraced Jesus Christs last words forgive them Father they know not what they do!
