Format: Paperback
Just finished this and, without hesitation, I have to say it's one of the best non-fiction books I've EVER read (and I've read a LOT). If you're at all interested in Anarchism and how it relates to Christianity, this book is a must read! My only complaint is that it's so short. It does, however, provide a good introduction to Christian Anarchism and points the reader toward other books that cover its particular aspects in greater detail. Christian Anarchists covered in this book include: Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin (founders of the Catholic Worker Movement), Clarence Jordan and company (founder of Habitat for Humanity, among other things), and the Berrigan Brothers (radical priests who were masters of civil disobedience in the name of stopping war and nuclear weaponry).

The books also dedicates several pages to Malcolm X, providing a brief analysis of the racist roots of the United States, and comparing his thoughts and tactics to those of Martin Luther King, Jr. This was a pleasant, and certainly unexpected, surprise given the topic of the book.

I can not recommend this book highly enough to anarchists, radical Christians, and anyone else interested in social justice and human rights, especially for the poor and working classes.

The only problem I found in the book is that the back cover promised a discussion of Eberhard Arnold and he was merely mentioned without comment. A discussion of Arnold would have led to a discussion of the Hutterian Brethern probably the most successful christian-anarcho-communist communal movement in history. Hutterite Society
