Description - Why We Live in Community by Eberhard Arnold
Everyone these days seems to be searching for community in one way or another - whether in the form of committed, nourishing relationships at home and at work, support networks, small groups, house churches - even cyberspace. But mention 'community' and many people literally go blank. They claim that they're not ready for the commitment such a term implies, or lack sufficient energy, gifts, or time. It's just not 'where they're at.' Or is it? This new translation of a time-honoured manifesto adds a fresh, engaging voice to the vital discussion of what real community is all about: love, joy, unity, and the great "adventure of faith" shared with others along the way. Neither Arnold nor Merton describe (or prescribe) community here, but for the individual seeker, they do provide a vision to guide and inspire the search, and for those who may have already answered the call to community, they offer the disarming challenge of greater commitment and a continually deepened faith.

Eberhard Arnold founded the Bruderhof Communities in 1920, in his native Germany. With Jesus' Sermon on the Mount as a blueprint, he and a handful of friends formed a Christian community, grounded in prayer, fellowship, nonviolence, and reverence for life.
