Product description

Roland Walls stood in awe admiring a tiny flower beside the path - 'Isn't it beautiful? Just sitting there. Not drawing attention to itself. Just being itself.'...

This humble religious Community, founded by Roland Walls in Roslin near Edinburgh, achieved its far-reaching international and ecumenical influence by embodying a simple mode of 'Being' in a world where most people are extremely busy 'Doing'. Through the story of the Community's origins and its 50 years of existence, the author explores how, against all trends, this tiny Christian community has been inspirational testimony to the relevance of religious faith in the 21st century.

Told by an authorised and involved author with unique access to the Community, the book is full of enthralling stories and anecdotes - and illustrates the practiced values of community over individualism and Being over Doing. This record of a fascinating phenomenon is no pious and sentimental account. The book cites the very real, raw struggles and the success of attempts to live the Christian life in a post-Christian society.

Product Reviews

‘This is a remarkable book, about a prophetic community which reveals signs for the future, living centred on Jesus and the Word of God. I hope many in our rich and secular societies can read this book of Christian life, poor and close to the poor.’ Jean Vanier

‘At the heart of this book is a group of people who put Jesus at the centre of everything. Despite their bold attempts at obscurity, the goodness seeped out and many of us are the better for that.’ Ricky Ross

‘This is a captivating, elegantly written and satisfying account of an intentionally low-profile community that has influenced many.’ Ron Ferguson
