Reviews - What do customers think about Eberhard Arnold: Selected Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters Series)?
Inspirational Jul 29, 2000
Arnold's vision of Christians living as an "embassy" of the Kingdom of God in today's world is thrilling. The church is empowered by the Holy Spirit to witness to the coming day when peace and justice will rule the earth. Arnold's words are as relevant now as they were when he wrote them 80 years ago. He gives hope and purpose.
Our minister passed out copies Mar 23, 2000
Our minister passed out copies of this book to every family in the congregation. The following week we were invited to read our favorite excerpts out loud. This sharing went on for so long and with such feeling that it took over the whole service. We did the same for several meetings and I feel the spirit that was kindled by this sharing had a major impact on our relationships to each other.
