With the concept of socialism back in mainstream
conversations and increasing numbers of Christians unhappy with "Sunday Christianity," it's time to give the lifestyle of Jesus' first followers another look. This issue of Plough Quarterly
does just that, profiling intentional Christian communities past and present and gleaning wisdom on the daily practicalities and pitfalls of communal living from those with years of experience in following Jesus together.

Plough Quarterly
