LIVING TOGETHER IN A WORLD FALLING APART The classic "handbook on Christian community," with updated reflections By Dave and Neta Jackson When LIVING TOGETHER IN A WORLD FALLING APART was first published in 1974, tensions in society-an unpopular war, racial divisions, fearful economics, the seeming futility of "success," and widespread alienation-were not addressed in most churches. Racism still thrived, worship meant three hymns and you're out, and relationships had deteriorated to weekly handshakes. But many believed-based on New Testament descriptions of the early church-that this couldn't be all God planned for his people. These restless souls eagerly read about Dave and Neta Jackson's personal search as they experimented with household living and took a road trip visiting the crop of emerging Christian communities around the country. Written in a breezy, candid manner, LIVING TOGETHER became not only a bestseller and classic "handbook on Christian community," but provided perhaps the only sociological snapshot of the many Christian communities from that era. Now, because many conditions in church and society are repeating themselves, interest in Christian community is reviving-whether through small groups, house churches, the emerging church movement, the new monasticism, or among Christians experimenting with communal living as a way to be more faithful, effective, and connected. This updated edition contains the original text of LIVING TOGETHER as well as many of the Jacksons' personal reflections and evaluations after living in Christian community for over 25 years, thereby providing nearly 30 percent new material.… (més)

Overall, this is a very helpful book in looking at the different factors it would take to live in community with others. It helps make possible the seemingly impractical and give a solid Biblical basis for doing so as well. Their experience doing this in addition to visiting other communities make this much more reputable as well and puts some more meat to it. ( )

This has to be one of the ground-breaking books on the subject of intentional Christian community. Asking and answering almost every conceivable question on the subject, Dave and Neta Jackson provide perspectives from several communities they visited in order to gather information for this book. Openly enthusiastic about Christian community life and perhaps naive at points, the authors still manage to describe what, from the perspective of more than 25 years now, was (and still can be) a manifestation of the work of Christ in the world. I was a member of one of the communities described and return to this book every now and then as a reminder of the glory that once was. Though dated, the book is still highly recommended to those led to pursue Christian community.
