This is a remarkable book, about a prophetic community which reveals signs for the future, living centred on Jesus and the Word of God. I hope many in our rich and secular societies can read this book of Christian life, poor and close to the poor.
At the heart of this book is a group of people who put Jesus at the centre of everything. Despite their bold attempts at obscurity, the goodness seeped out and many of us are the better for that.
This is a captivating, elegantly written and satisfying account of an intentionally low-profile community that has influenced many.
Do read this book, it will encourage you, fire your imagination, perhaps renew your own vocation, learning again what is essential to life, what this world is in need of, and where true treasures are to be found.
