On October 2nd, 2006, Charles Roberts broke into the Nickel Mines Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, PA and killed a number of school girls. The story of that tragic Amish school shooting made national news. But the resulting Amish forgiveness displayed in the lives of the entire Amish community made international headlines.
The events at Nickel Mines and the story that followed have now been described in three fascinating books. These books describe the faith and love that brought healing three years ago and can still bring healing to our society today:
- “Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy” by Donald Kraybill, Steven Nolt, and David Weaver-Zercher (Sept. 2007)
- “The Happening – Nickel Mines School Tragedy” by Harvey Yoder (Sept. 2007)
- “Think No Evil: Inside the Story of the Amish Schoolhouse Shooting… and Beyond” by Jonas Beiler and Shawn Smucker (Sept. 2009)
