Hutterite Diaries

by Linda Maendel

I had never heard of the Hutterite community. Apparently, they live their lives in a communal setting. They share everything, take meals together, etc… I thought this book sounded really interesting because I love memoirs and I wanted to learn more about this colony. They use modern conveniences, unlike the Amish, but they just live like Acts 2:44,45 tell us the disciples and early church lived.

“And all who believed were together and had all things in common.  And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.”

Unfortunately, this book was not at all interesting. It didn’t really tell you anything at all about their community. It was a few stories about the author’s life and they did not hold my interest at all. Not even one! I was really surprised by this. I hate to give a bad review, but there wasn’t a single thing I liked about the book.

Thank you, Litfuse, for this book. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
