About the Author

In 1984, I followed tradition and became a member of the Amish Church. I had to go through a 6 month period of training, where we were taught the ordinances, and then I was baptized by a pouring of water on my head. In July of 1985, a man was sharing with me how Jesus came and died for me, and that He'd taken all of my sin away at Calvary. I listened and then the tears came as I felt a wonderful outpouring of love from God. I asked Jesus to come into my life and to save this poor sinner from hell. I had been living a very rebellious life and was, at that time, living with my girlfriend. Esther was that girlfriend and she became my first convert, and later my wife. Little did we realize how soon we would also be outcasts of the Amish for our "new beliefs."

Joe Keim's book mirrored much of my own experience of when I left the Amish church. I could truly feel his frustration with living under the absolute rule of the church and the fear of venturing out into the unknown English world. The devastation of losing all of your family and the only life you have ever known is something that is felt forever. -- Misty Griffin -Author of Tears of the Silenced-
