This book examines part of the development of the Bruderhof community, which emerged in Germany in 1920. Community members sought to model their life on the New Testament. This included sharing goods. The community became part of the Hutterite movement, with its origins in sixteenth-century Anabaptism. After the rise to power of the Nazi regime, the Bruderhof became a target and the community was forcibly dissolved. Members who escaped from Germany and travelled to England were welcomed as refugees from persecution and a community was established in the Cotswolds.

Something different...

Here’s something we all look forward to every year at Christmas: a tree, placed centrally in our meeting room, is undecorated except for about fifty white candles arranged on its branches. We come together around it in the dimly-lit room, and then, as we sing one carol after another, the candles are slowly lit, one by one. With many of the candles that are lit, a wish is expressed, with others it’s an unspoken prayer or longing. It’s those quiet ones that are most poignant, and one can only guess at the burdens which are lightened as each candle is illuminated: an estranged son or daughter, a sick parent, an ailing spouse, a nagging conflict, a heavy heart. By lighting candles together we become closer: no longer strangers sitting alone in our individual darknesses, we have been transformed – like the glowing tree – by flames of love and hope and light.

Don’t read Craig Greenfield's "Subversive Jesus" if you’re happy with how you’re following Jesus right now. Seriously. With Christmas coming, there will be numerous opportunities to demonstrate your Christian charity in quick and easy ways that don’t actually change anything: neither the situations you’re ostensibly trying to improve, nor yourself.
But if you’re not happy with how you’re following Jesus – if you think your faith could somehow become more practical, more real, more honest – then by all means get a copy now.
