Amish Prayers by Beverly Lewis
The Amish as well as other Anabaptist groups have used the same book of prayers for centuries. Now for the first time a selection of these prayers is readily available in English. This exclusive authentic translation from the original German--with an introduction by Beverly Lewis--will give readers insights into the spiritual foundations of the Plain people. Each prayer is paired with a Scripture passage to draw readers closer to God. This hardcover illustrated gift book is perfect for old and new fans of Amish fiction alike.
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads.)
I thought this was a great short read. Beverly Lewis's books are usually good, and this one is no exception. I was hoping for a little more Amish stories in it, not just prayers and bible verses. However, it was still a very inspirational book. I didn't really have a favorite prayer or bible verse in Amish Prayers. I liked all of the book equally. It made a great Christmas gift for my mom, who absolutely loved it. It will definitely also make a great gift for anyone who likes Christian or Amish books.
I give Amish Prayers: 3/5.

I recieved this book from the publisher, Bethany House, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
