Hutterite Diaries (#03 in Plainspoken Series)

Linda Maendel

$20.99

Paperback
:What would it be like to live out Acts 2? To share all your possessions and live in Christian community? In Hutterite Diaries, Linda Maendel offers a rare glimpse into the daily routines and relational 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. Maendel's story invites readers into deeper understanding of this community of faith, and calls us to take seriously the example of Jesus and the early church in our daily living.

In the Plainspoken series, hear straight from plain Anabaptists as they write about their daily lives and deeply rooted faith. Each Plainspoken book includes "A Day in the Life of the Author" and the author's answers to FAQs. The Plainspoken series from Herald Press features real-life stories of Amish, Mennonites, Hutterites and other plain Anabaptists.
