Community and Growth
Paperback |256 pp |216 x 135 mm
'Our communities should be signs of joy and celebration ... If we are accepted with our limitations as well as our abilities, community gradually becomes a place of liberation ... this terrible place can become one of life and growth.'
Contemporary society is the product of the disintegration of more or less natural or familial groupings. People area afraid, uncertain - and shut themselves away. But they need companions, friends with whom they can share their lives, their visions and their ideals; in short, they need community.
Community and Growth now regarded as one of todays great classics is a unique book. It is no dry and systematic treatise, but rather a brilliant series of starting points for reflection on the nature and meaning of community.
