Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0836199464, Paperback)What would it be like to share all your possessions and live in Christian community? In Hutterite Diaries, Linda Maendel offers a rare glimpse into the daily routines and communal faith of her people, the Hutterian Brethren. From stories of working together to bring in the fall potato harvest to laugh-out-loud tales of sisterly love laced with revenge, Maendel invites readers into her Bruderhof, or colony, nestled on the prairie of western Canada. Here children and adults work, play, eat, and worship together, crafting a community of goods and living out an alternative to the individualism and consumerism of mainstream society.
Because few outsiders know anything about the Hutterites, a Plain Christian group related to the Amish and Mennonites, this book offer a rare-glimpse into Hutterite life.
Plainspoken series real-life stories of Amish and Mennonites includes:
Book 1 Chasing the Amish Dream: My Life as a Young Amish Bachelor by Loren Beachy
Book 2 Called to Be Amish: My Journey from Head Majorette to the Old Order by Marlene Miller
Book 3 Hutterite Diaries: Wisdom from My Prairie Community by Linda Maendel
