In Separate And Peculiar: Old Order Mennonite Life In Ontario, author Isaac Horst, an Old Order Mennonite, thoroughly explains the customs, beliefs, and culture of his people in Ontario - both in English and in Pennsylvanian German. This bilingual presentation shows the Mennonite community through the eyes and story of a typical boy, Menno Martin, who matures over time at home, on the farm, in school, and at church. Eventually he marries Grace and becomes a preacher. Vivid language and eyewitness detail bring to life what it is like to live in an Old Order Mennonite community, from barn raising, quilting, and butchering day to youth singings and being baptized as a member of the church. With black-and-white illustrations, a glossary of typical Mennonite terms, and a captivating point of view, Separate And Peculiar is strongly recommended reading for anyone with an interest in the Old Order Mennonite community.
