Publisher's Description

For 50 years, a unique and courageous group of people have quietly opted for a life of poverty and the discipline of prayer. Always with the time and care to understand people’s hidden pains, their permanently open meal-table usually rocked with laughter.

Drawing exclusively on the memories of the Community’s members, their private papers and the reminiscences of those they have known, this book captures a life of humour, tragedy, inspiration and insight. In our increasingly dehumanising culture, the Community’s devotion to the details of daily life has had a life-changing impact on many people across the world.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

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.
