Item Description...
Description: The first Christians immediately set about creating a social structure based on democratic control of their collective resources, which were shared freely. While this was a voluntary system, it carried great spiritual weight and was a continuation of values that were clearly encouraged in the stories of the Old Testament. This style of organizing can also be found in the modern cooperative movement, which is made up of thousands of democratically controlled businesses serving millions of members worldwide. This movement touches the lives of nearly half of Americans, and has grown into a comprehensive economic system in other parts of the world. Christians have played key roles in the development of this movement, but the theological basis for this participation is not widely understood. Holy Cooperation is an examination of what the Bible teaches about social organizing, and an exploration of some of the cooperative ways that Christians have worked together. Through cooperation we may act as our brothers' and sisters' keepers, while staying true to Jesus's teachings of liberation. Endorsements: "Holy Cooperation is a tract for our times. For a generation that says, 'Don't tell me what you believe until you show me how you live, ' Andrew opens up a treasure chest of experiments old and new in the truth of God's economy. He writes with the zeal of a convert because he's one who has found new hope in Jesus's vision of a kingdom that overcomes Mammon one mustard seed at a time." -Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove author of Free to be Bound and New Monasticism About the Contributor(s): Andrew McLeod is a cooperative development specialist who lives in Sacramento, California

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Following the Example of the Early Christian Church  Dec 1, 2008
McLeod has written a small book (more than a tract, less than a novel) about how the original Christians lived and worked cooperatively, and how it is possible to still do so today. It is not an advocacy of commune living, but more how you have have faith-based structure to business, work, health and living organizations. There is a historical overview of how it has worked (or not) in the past, and examples of current organizations and people living by cooperative principles. There are plenty of footnotes and Biblical references, but Holy Cooperation! doesn't fall into a dry writing style. There has been a growing focus on local communities in the Green movement and localvores; McLeod makes a good case for a Christian basis for the same thing.
