Summary "There are two amazing and unlikely narratives in this book. One is the unusual story of Amish immigrant brothers who take divergent paths to distant worlds. Jacob Mast becomes the leading bishop of the Amish of Berks and Chester Counties, Pennsylvania; his brother John abandons his spiritual community and absorbs the values of the North Carolinian South, including slavery. These paths do not converge until, generations later, two descendants meet on a Midwestern college campus. And there lies the second amazing story; how the coauthors, one African American and the other Anglo American discovered their common roots while teaching at Hesston College."
