<b>"A lively memoir mixed with short biographies of appealing religious outcasts." -PUBLISHERS WEEKLY</b></br>With untested ideals and a thirst for adventure, Christiana Peterson and her family moved to an intentional Christian farming community in the rural Midwest. It sounded like a simple and faithful way to follow Jesus, not to mention a great place to raise kids. In Mystics and Misfits, Peterson discovers that community life is never really simple and that she needs resources beyond her own to weather the anxiety and exhaustion of trying to save a dying farm and a floundering congregation. She turns to Christian mystics like Francis of Assisi, Simone Weil, and Dorothy Day to find sustenance for the everyday struggles and unique hardships of community life. With a contemplative''s spirit and poet''s eye, Peterson leads readers into an encounter with the God of the wild mystics and the weird misfits.
