Item Description...

Now available in paperback, Tracy K'Meyer's book is a thoughtful and engaging portrait of Koinonia Farm, an interracial Christian cooperative founded in 1942 by two white Baptist ministers in southwest Georgia. The farm was begun as an expression of radical southern Protestantism, and its interracial nature made it a beacon to early civil rights activists, who rallied to its defense and helped it survive attacks from the Ku Klux Klan and others.

Based on over fifty interviews with current and former Koinonia members, K'Meyer's book provides a history of the farm during its period of greatest influence. K'Meyer outlines the conceptual flaws that have troubled the community, but finds that Koinonia's enduring effect as a social movement--including Millard Fuller's founding of Habitat for Humanity, prompted by a 1965 visit to the farm--is far more meaningful than its internal conflicts. For anyone in search of a hardy strain of Christian progressivism in the Bible Belt, reading K'Meyer's book is an inspiring and intellectually fulfilling experience in its own right.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
History Kept Alive  May 22, 2000
This book is a very well researched and accurate reporting of the events that occured at Koinonia Farm from its founding in 1942 and the three decades that followed. As someone deeply interested in the history of Koinonia Farm, I use the book often as a reference, and a starting point to discovering new aspects of the community.

Though things have quieted down at Koinonia in recent years, community members try to keep the spirit of Clarence and Florence Jordan and the other founders alive. This book goes a long way in helping with this desire.

If you are new Koinonia Farm, I highly recommend this book to inspire the desire to learn more, and become more involved in the issues that still face Koinonia, and the country as a whole. If you are already familiar, this book will provide the details that make Koinonia's history an inspiring topic.
