Steven M. Nolt is professor of history at Goshen College and author of twelve books, most of which focus on Amish and Mennonite history and culture. He is a frequent source for journalists and other researching Anabaptist groups. He was often quoted in the aftermath of the 2006 Amish school shooting at Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania. His co-authored book, Amish Grace, explores Amish forgiveness in the wake of the school shooting.[1]
