Written in 2001 this study of the four main Old Order groups is interesting It is a sociological study and includes a lot of statistics It is very much like a text book and it repeats itself a fair bit but if you are interested in the subject I would recommend it The authors pride themselves on their access to informants among the Plain People and they gloss over most of the current negative publicity or popular culture though they do touch on some of it in the postmodern chapter I do have a better understanding of the history and the differences among the groups

On the Backroad to Heaven Old Order Hutterites Mennonites Amish and Brethren Center Books in Anabaptist Studies free read ↠ 6 Donald B. Kraybill à 6 read read & download Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB à Donald B. Kraybill Life Following a general introduction to Old Order culture they show how each group uses a different strategy to create and sustain its identity The Hutterites for example keep themselves geographically segregated from the larger society whereas the Brethren interact freely with it The Amish. I read this admittedly decade old book because I wanted to learn about Hutterites and this is what my local library had available without getting a loan from an university Having grown up in Pennsylvania I was somewhat familiar with Mennonites and the Amish and even some Brethren and it was nice to read a well researched text that explored their social organization and how technology or the avoidance of it fits into their separatist beliefs Having grown up near these groups I don t romanticize them I have no delusion about living the simple life Old Order Mennonite style I can t even imagine the life of a farmer using every available technology I know farmers and I know that farming is hard and there s a reason my family has been working in trades since all branches of the family tree were still in Europe The one thing I have been guilty of romanticizing is the sense of community in these groups Perhaps this is because I live fairly solitary existence and the thought of a built in network is appealing This book explores that sense of community and while it shows the incredible benefits it also explains how the trade off is giving up any individualism and self determination I can t really speak to the academics I will presume the authors are experts but one thing struck me as odd While I m assuming the authors intent when referring to ancient truths or ancient ways or ancient anything with the Old Order groups that they meant that the groups considered these traditions to be ancient Why point this out Many other religions consider their beliefs to be ancient in origin as well By calling the Old Order ways ancient it seems to imply an ancient origin to their religion which just isn t there or at least not so than any other Christian religion I m no Biblical scholar but I m confident in my assessment that Jesus didn t wear suspenders and a broad brimmed hatWhile I found the book to be educational and informative I can t say it was a fun read Like so many academic books the authors don t seem to want to make it read like anything other than assigned reading True they are professors and not authors per se but that s not a good excuse for their book to get a bit dull and even repetitive at times I do have to give kudos for the title On the Backroad to Heaven is a fantastic title And the authors were obviously in love with it they use that phrase uite a bit throughout the book It was overused to the point where every time I read it I could envision Craig Robinson turning to the camera breaking the fourth wall and saying It s like we re on some sort of Backroad to Heaven
