What I Learned From The Amish: With Donald Kraybill

Donald Kraybill

What, if anything, can we learn from the Amish? Professor Kraybill spent decades researching and writing about this distinctive community. In a series of episodes he argues that our hyper-tech society has much to learn from the horse-and-buggy driving Amish. In each episode, Kraybill explains how an old-fashion practice related to community, technology, apprenticeship, and forgiveness—turns relevant once again in the twenty first century. An Amish man joins the conversation in each session. Donald B. Kraybill is professor of sociology emeritus at Elizabethtown College and senior fellow in the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies. An internationally recognized scholar, he has published many books and professional essays on the Amish and other Anabaptist communities in North America. His most recent book, What The Amish Teach Us is available from Johns Hopkins University Press and Amazon.
