I won this book from LibraryThing's Early reviewers. I didn't really start to enjoy this book until the 6th chapter. It was interesting and gave me a lot to think about. I did like getting a glimpse of the Amish life from a man's point of view.

I won this book from Librarything's Early reviewers. I really enjoy Amish fiction, but this one was very different. It was more of a journal. I enjoyed it mostly, but I wish there had been more depth to the topic. There was really no explanation or interpretation of the vision. ( )

An Amish awaking is well put together to bring this interviewed mans story of God's Love and the Amish's Faith is not hard to fathom. Although I have never met an Amish person personally I have read enough to understand a bit of the hardships an Amish person faith places upon their shoulders and and their family. To be shunned and excommunicated just for believing in your faith, reading the bible too much and spreading the word of God about your experiences with him is hard to chew but that is the Amish way. Every culture and religion has their differences and this book definitely put some light on the Amish's tradition of excommunication ( )

I read the book. Great story and experience! However, I kept wanting more. more detail , more about his life, more about his faith. Sounded like it was hard for him to tell the Amish brethern about his experience. Enjoyed it!

A nice story, but a little incomplete for me. Wanted more details of how his life really was. Too much on the surface and not enough of his faith was explained. Still learned a lot about the Amish lifestyle. ( )

An Amish Awakening

More than just another going to Heaven story.

More than one more Amish book being thrown into the mix.

Airbrushed Amish this is not. The gritty collides with the glorious. Blunt bullies tenderhearted. And the blood of Jesus’ never fails.

Churches filled up. Crowds gathered when they found out that this Amish man would be speaking at an Amish person’s barn or workshop. And countless people dropped by his home unannounced. They wanted to hear his story.

This is the true story of Mark Paul Troyer. Yes, it’s the story everyone wanted to hear. And the book:  An Amish Awakening, is Mark’s life—story. His amazing story. An Amish story like no other.

With tragedy and triumph—the book that was nearly stillborn because of controversy and emotions has come to life. Three and a half years after an abrupt halting of publication; it was time—God's timing. Now An Amish Awakening is ready to shine. “Awake, O sleeper. And arise from the dead…”

The Story? As Mark puts it, "One day at work I was caught up into a whirlwind." And taken to Heaven. And so much more.
