Justice, Community, and the Coming Kingdom
Get the Book
Do you feel powerless to change the injustice at every level of society? Are you tired of answers that ignore the root causes of human suffering? This selection of writings by Eberhard Arnold, who left a career and the established church in order to live out the Gospel, calls us to a completely different way.
Be warned: Arnold doesn't approach discipleship as the route to some benign religious fulfillment, but as a revolution - a transformation that begins within and spreads outward to encompass every aspect of life. Arnold writes in the same tradition of radical obedience to the gospel as his contemporaries Barth and Bonhoeffer.
Arnold's writing has all the simple, luminous, direct vision into things that I have come to associate with his name. It has the authentic ring of a truly evangelical Christianity and moves me deeply. It stirs to repentance and renewal. I am deeply grateful for it.
Richard Foster, author, Celebration of Discipline
The aim of God in history is the creation of an all-inclusive community of persons with Christ as its prime sustainer and most glorious inhabitant...Arnold's vision incarnates just such a community.

This book has challenged and nourished my own thought concerning violence, property, war, the ruling authorities and assorted principalities, and especially the Christian's eschatological expectation.
