In the waning light of our long, bloody century, western society has never seemed so ripe for total collapse. Morally, socially, economically, and politically, we are reaping the fruits of our illusions -- and our evasiveness in dealing with the real root problems of our age. At the same time, the solutions touted by religious and secular leaders alike are either at polar extremes, or blandly ineffective.
In this newly revised anthology of excerpts from Arnold's most compelling writings, the maverick theologian and founder of the Bruderhof challenges us to try a completely different alternative: to wake from our complacent slumber and seek the eternal (even if uncomfortable) truths of Christ's way.

Mark Horst, The Christian Century
Draws us into conversation with a deeply serious Christian thinker who is unwilling to separate personal from social religion or to sever practical from theological issues.
