We are excited to be able to release part of this documentary project to DVD and digital this month.  We are already shipping The Amish and the Reformation DVDs to all those who pre-ordered.  Here is my Mom with a few copies of the DVD.

You can see all the available ways of watching The Amish and the Reformation on our Where to Watch page.

We are beginning to get feedback from people who are watching the first copies of the DVD.  Here is a photo and status that my sister Ruth posted on her Facebook page:

Just finished previewing “The Amish and the Reformation” the documentary my brother made for the 500 anniversary year of Martin Luther nailing the 95 Theses on the Wittenburg Castle door. If you’re interested in the Reformation and especially how it relates to the Amish you should watch it! I thought it was interesting and I don’t normally like documentaries but then again I’m probably biased. ???? After all it is a part of the history of my people. And I think my brother does a great job of narrating.  – Ruth Graber


The rest of the series will be released later.  Stay connected and we will let you know as soon as possible how you can see all of Breaking the Silence!
