Item description for Clarence Jordan: Essential Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters Series) by Joyce Hollyday & Clarence Jordan...
Overview A true American prophet Clarence Jordan (1912-1969) was reared in the heart of the Southern Baptist Church. He passed up the options of scholarship or traditional ministry to found an interracial Christian community in Americus, Georgia at a time when preaching racial justice and equality could spark violence. His cooperative farm was repeatedly attacked by the KKK and subject to a total economic boycott. Through his sermons and his so-called Cotton Patch version of the Gospels--a "dynamic" translation of his own setting Jesus' life in a Southern context Jordan laid out a revolutionary vision of Christian community.
