内容説明

Twice in the last century -- the early 1920s (in Germany) and the late 60s (in America) -- hordes of young people defied the middle-class mores of their parents and sought fellowship with their peers in rural communes. Sadly, Nazism swallowed the German movement virtually whole -- and Wall Street, though in entirely different fashion, did the same to the American one.<p>Torches Together is the story of a community that survived: the Bruderhof, a 75-year-old movement that began when writer Eberhard Arnold and his wife Emmy left Berlin life for the unknowns of an impoverished village.<p>At first glance a memoir, Torches Together is a radical call to faith and commitment against great odds. It is also a remarkable testimony to the leading of the Spirit, which, as Arnold writes, can hold together those who believe in the "daily miracle" of community "through thick and thin".<p>Lyn Baker, Logos Journal<p>Details in subdued and undramatic fashion how ordinary middle-class Christians were spurred by the Holy Spirit and the decadence of their culture to become lowly, dependent, and centered on God.
