Product Description

Contemporary society is the product of the disintegration of more or less natural or familial groupings. People are 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.

This completely revised edition of Community and Growth is your guide to communal life. Written by the founder of the world-famous l'Arche community for the mentally handicapped and their helpers, Jean Vanier offers a series of "starting-points for reflection" on the nature and meaning of community.

Publisher's Description

If you've ever thought about community, whether as a lifestyle or simply as an expression of deeper fellowship with others, this book is essential reading. In the fifteen years since it first appeared in English, it has become "the" classic text on the subject -- read, dog-eared, borrowed, and discussed.

Vanier is not a rosy idealist. That is because his writing is based not on theories, but on a wealth of wisdom gleaned over many years living in community, experiencing difficult days and joyous celebrations, times of struggle and hard-won success, moments of doubt and inspiration. He acknowledges the inevitable little frustrations of a life lived with and for others, but he also helps the reader see that without struggle there is no true growth.

    A powerful and practical look inside community life. Vanieris more a Universalist than I but I was challenged by the sacrificeshe and his friends have made.
