Editorial Reviews


In this compelling book Tracy K'Meyer narrates the story of Koinonia Farm, which was founded in 1942 and is still in operation in Sumter County, Georgia.... Interracialism and Christian Community in the Postwar South succeeds not only as a history but as a primer for social action.

Tracy Elaine K'Meyer captures the intrigue of Koinonia Farm's history in her eloquently crafted book.... [Her] research is solid, the writing is lively, and the story is engaging. This book does remarkable service to the task of studying a significant religious and social movement in the twentieth-century South.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Geoffrey Hennies on May 21, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book is a very well researched and accurate reporting of the events that occured at Koinonia Farm from its founding in 1942 and the three decades that followed. As someone deeply interested in the history of Koinonia Farm, I use the book often as a reference, and a starting point to discovering new aspects of the community.
Though things have quieted down at Koinonia in recent years, community members try to keep the spirit of Clarence and Florence Jordan and the other founders alive. This book goes a long way in helping with this desire.
If you are new Koinonia Farm, I highly recommend this book to inspire the desire to learn more, and become more involved in the issues that still face Koinonia, and the country as a whole. If you are already familiar, this book will provide the details that make Koinonia's history an inspiring topic.
