This week on Amish Wisdom: Who the Anabaptists? Round 2: Mennonites, Hutterites and the Amish

This week we'll be revisiting "Who Are the Anabaptists?". The first show featured Ira Wagler, Sherry Gore, Erik Wesner and Mary Ann Kirkby. On Thursday's show we'll welcome back Erik Wesner and also hear from a former Old Order Mennonite, Osiah Hoorst and a practicing Hutterite, Linda Maendel. Not sure of the differences between, Amish, Old Order Amish, Mennonite & Hutterite? Well, tune in and have all your questions answered.

For a chance to win an advanced copy of my latest book The Haven - leave a comment here (or email amy@litfusegroup.com if the comment box isn't working)! One winner will be notified via email next week.

More about our panel:

Erik Wesner: 

Erik is the author of the popular blog "Amish America." He has visited 30+ Amish communities in nearly a dozen states, and met around 5,000 Amish families.  

Erik is the author of Success Made Simple: An Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive, and Kim sa Amisze?, the first book on the Amish in the Polish language.

He has contributed to Amish-themed articles featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and other print media, and was the 2008 Snowden Fellow at the Young Center at Elizabethtown College. 

Osiah Hoorst: 

Osiah Horst grew up in an Old Order Mennonite family in Canada.  Osiah’s father Isaac wrote a column for a local newspaper which eventually grew into the book A Separate People: An Insider’s View of Old Order Mennonite Customs and Traditions, a witty and incisive look at Old Order Mennonite society.

Isaac penned 2 dozen books and many columns, before passing away in 2008.  Osiah has kindly taken some time to answer questions today about Old Order Mennonite life and his father’s work.

Linda Maendel:

Linda Maendel and was born and raised Hutterite. She lives on a colony in Manitoba, Canada and works in the local school, teaching English and German to K-6 students. During the summer months she enjoys helping with all the other colony work, cooking, gardening and canning. In her free time she loves to read, write and maintain her blog, Hutt-Write Voice. She has one published German children's book and has translated a set of Bible Stories into her language, a Carintian German dielect which they fondly call Hutterisch, and orginates from the province of Carinthia in Austria.

  7. Linda says: Enjoyed being on your show with your other guests, Suzanne. But am so sorry that listening to the show and podcast was so garbled. Other people have told me the same and wondered if something could still be done to fix that. Thanks for having me and for your interest in our Hutterite way of life
