About The Book

For a concise, readable introduction to a man who, in his search for Christ, spent his life turning conventional Christianity on its head, this is a good place to start. Eberhard Arnold (1883-1935) is relatively unknown today, yet his life's work continues to bear fruit today as few lives have. In 1920, venturing into an unknown future—and leaving wealth, security, and a public speaking career—he moved with his wife Emmy from Berlin to a tiny village, where they started a small community on the basis of early church practices as described in the Book of Acts. A Testimony to Church Community contains a biographical sketch, selections from his most important works, and brief memoirs by friends and colleagues.
