This book was written from an Anabaptist perspective geared towards a younger Christian Anabaptist and seems directed at an Amish audience. The book has six different sections relating to various parts of home and farm life. The goal of this book is to encourage the Anabaptist community to use more thought in what risks they take. The sections are as follows: Home and Community, Fire Safety, Farm and Logging Safety, Shop and Construction Safety, Gun/Hunting Safety, and Road Safety. I will be addressing each section individually and giving a summary of my thoughts at the end. Atnip does not specify his reason for writing but addresses some safety items that may not be taught in an Amish home otherwise. [First paragraph.]
