“Anything But Simple is, I think the most honest, open look at ‘the Mennonite life’ I’ve ever read.” writes Jeanette Dexter in her review of Anything But Simple.
No sign here of the typical glossy, sugar-coated painting of the Mennonites as living perfect lives, in some perfect world, where Dad and Mom grew up perfect, and they (in perfect people fashion,) raise up their perfect children.
Neither will you find the other extreme, where Mennonites are depicted as ALL being corrupt and shady, where every father is abusive, every husband unfaithful, and every teenager a rebellious drunk.
