Publishers Description
Loss Forgiveness and Restoration.The Face of Christ illustration and the accompanying story that has changed lives all around the globe.First it is a truelife story of an advertising executive an artist and a pastor Joe Castillo and the way God changed him. It also tells of the many lives touched by this simple illustration.Done before a live audience the very first time it had a powerful impact on those who watched. This motivated the artist to reproduce it in pen ink prints. As an artist Joes struggle to make a living was suddenly compounded by having his wife diagnosed with cancer. They had no insurance to cover the mounting debt but at an opportune time a friend offered to reproduce the artwork on marble plaques and pay royalties. The sales of the plaques were amazing surely this was the answer to all their financial problems But the story seems to grind to a halt. The friend refuses to pay royalties on the artwork that is selling world wide and Joe loses his wife to cancer. It becomes a daily struggle to forgive the man who was profiting from his artwork and overcome the bitterness at the loss of his wife. The plaques seem to show up everywhere compounding his anger and resentment. For Joe it became a bitter symbol of everything that had gone wrong.If you have ever struggled with forgiveness. If some events in your life just dont make sense God can use this artwork and the story that goes with it to help you put the pieces together.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Amish School (People's Place Book No. 6.)?

Fascinating  Apr 18, 2004
This book is the sixth in the People's Place Booklet series on the Amish and other Old Order Anabaptists. This fascinating book is an in-depth examination of education in the Amish community. The authors, one of whom was actually a teacher in an Amish one-room schoolhouse, look at every facet of what Amish education is and what it means. Along the way, the reader is treated to a wealth of information on the significance of Amish schools, their history, and what is taught and how.

Overall, I found this to be a fascinating and heartwarming look at the Amish. I must say that my favorite chapter was the one which includes extracts from an Amish girl's diary, about going to school. If you are interested in the Amish and other Old Order groups, then I cannot recommend this book to you enough. Get it!

Good source of information  Mar 30, 2000
This is a useful book if you are looking for some basic information about an Amish school. It is written by a woman who once taught at an Amish school and goes into how their schools are run including the involvement of the teacher, parents and other members of the community. Since the book is rather short, it does not go into curriculum at all.
