Why We Live in Community

$5.79
($8.00)
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-honored 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.

Henri J. M. Nouwen, L'Arche/Day Break

One of the most challenging statements on community that I have ever read. Its radical God-centeredness makes it not only very demanding, but also very inviting, comforting, and reassuring.

Richard Rohr Center for Action & Contemplation

Too many contemporary Christians have separated Jesus from living history and the mystery of the body of Christ. Arnold's vision of community gives me hope that the gospel can be recovered in our time.
