Eberhard Arnold was not afraid of the truth. A man for today's seekers, he faced life's essential questions head on. When he found answers, he lived them. His contemporaries dubbed him a 'modern-day St. Francis.' He renounced private property and the convential church, choosing the early Christians as his role models. Against the Wind gives flesh, blood, and personality to a man whose contagious faith sparked a movement of practical Christian community. The Bruderhof, Arnold's legacy, carries on his commitment to integrate faith and action.
