Why, in an age of connectivity, are our lives more isolated and _x000D_
fragmented than ever? And what can be done about it? The answer lies in _x000D_
the hands of God’s people. Increasingly, today’s Christians want to be_x000D_
the church, to follow Christ together in daily life. From every corner _x000D_
of society, they are daring to step away from the status quo and respond_x000D_
to Christ’s call to share their lives more fully with one another and _x000D_
with others. As they take the plunge, they are discovering the rich, _x000D_
meaningful life that Jesus has in mind for all people, and pointing the _x000D_
church back to its original calling: to be a gathered, united community _x000D_
that demonstrates the transforming love of God.
Of course, such a life together with others isn’t easy._x000D_ The selections in this volume are, by and large, written by _x000D_ practitioners?people who have pioneered life in intentional community _x000D_ and have discovered in the nitty-gritty of daily life what it takes to _x000D_ establish, nurture, and sustain a Christian community over the long _x000D_ haul.
Whether you have just begun thinking about communal _x000D_ living, are already embarking on sharing life with others, or have been _x000D_ part of a community for many years, the pieces in this collection will _x000D_ encourage, challenge, and strengthen you. The book’s fifty-two chapters _x000D_ can be read one a week to ignite meaningful group discussion.
