From the Back Cover
“This is a book that we’ve needed for a long, long time…. This is a book for people who long for community and for people who’ve found it; for young seekers and for old radicals. Like a farmer’s almanac or a good cookbook, it’s a guide that doesn’t tell you what to do, but rather gives you the resources you need to find your way together with friends in the place where you are. We couldn’t be more grateful to have a book like this. And we couldn’t be happier to share it with you.”—Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove,from the book’s Foreword
In the 21st century, a new generation of Spirit-energized people are searching for a new—yet ancient—way of life together. David Janzen, a friend of the New Monasticism movement with four decades of personal communal experience, has visited scores of communities, both old and new. The Intentional Christian Community Handbook shares his wisdom, as well as the experience of intentional Christian communities across North America over the last half century.
About the Author
David Janzen graduated from Bethel College and studied at Harvard Divinity School. In 1971, he and his wife helped found New Creation Fellowship, a Christian intentional community in Newton KS. In 1984, they moved to Reba Place Fellowship in Evanston IL, where David now runs an affordable housing ministry.
Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove are the co-authors, with Enuma Okoro, of Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals.

Our 4-year-old community has looked to Janzen and the Reba Place Fellowship for guidance and encouragement. All of our community is reading the book, and will discuss it at our annual retreat. I am confident that our community will grow closer together and to God because of the relevant topics discussed in the book.

This is an excellent provocateur for thinking through and establishing specifically Christian Community.
