Against the Wind: Eberhard Arnold and the Bruderhof
DescriptionEberhard Arnold was not afraid of the truth. A man for today's seekers, he faced life's essential questions head on. When he found answers, he lived them. His contemporaries dubbed him a "modern-day St. Francis." He renounced private property and the conventional church, choosing the early Christians as his role models. A man of unwavering conviction, Arnold walked resolutely against the prevailing winds, even as Nazism engulfed Germany. Against the Wind gives flesh, blood, and personality to a man whose contagious faith sparked a movement of practical Christian community. The Bruderhof, Arnold's legacy, carries on his commitment to integrate faith and -action.
