Eberhard Arnold

$13.20

Paperback
234 Pages

- Publisher 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.^Jim Wallis, Sojourners^The witness of Eberhard Arnold is a much needed corrective to an American church that has lost the vital, biblical connection between belief and obedience...Shows us what discipleship might look like in the modern world.^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.

- Publisher Christ's truth may heal and save, but to do so, they must first turn our compacent lives upside down. Feeling powerless to change to greed and injustice at every level in society? Tired of answers that ignore the true causes of human suffering? This revised anthology of Arnold's most compelling writings challenges us to seek the eternal truths of Christ's Way. But be warned: to Arnold, discipleship means revolution - a transformation that begins within, but spreads outward to encompass has power to change the world.
