By Eberhard Arnold
Intentional communities and communal living are back in the popular conversation. In the church, this takes the form of neo-monastic communities, Christian neighborhood groups, and an upsurge in vocations to religious orders. What does real community look like? In his classic manifesto Why We Live in Community, Eberhard Arnold explores why community is the calling of the church, and what it takes to live it out in the daily grind. Each of the readings in this series based on Arnold’s book is paired with a matching Bible passage.
