   schema:reviewBody ""In this book, McKanan explores two contemporary community movements that touch the world by honoring the diverse spiritual and vocational paths of the families and individuals who join them. One of these movements, Camphill, derives its inspiration from the esoteric vision of Christianity outlined by Rudolf Steiner. It boasts a worldwide network of schools and villages composed of members with and without developmental disabilities, living and working together most often in agricultural settings. The other is the well-known Catholic Worker movement founded in New York by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin. The Worker movement today includes nearly two hundred urban houses of hospitality and rural farms, along with countless individuals who have taken Day's and Maurin's ideals into everyday life. Blending theological and ethnographic approaches, McKanan builds his study on participant observation, archival research, and interviews with members of more than twenty communities. What emerges is a vision of the impact transformative Christian communities can have in a blessed and broken world."--BOOK JACKET." ;
