Praise for The Abundant Community:
"What we need is here." That line from a Wendell Berry poem sums up the theme that runs through this vital and timely book. No one is better equipped to help us test this truth than John McKnight and Peter Block. This book is a treasure. And it can help us recover the treasures hidden in plain sight within and among us, renewing ourselves and our democracy as we go."
—Parker J. Palmer, author of A Hidden Wholeness, Let Your Life Speak and The Courage to Teach and founder, Center for Courage and Renewal
"The Abundant Community is a book that reminds us that our greatest strength as a people comes from the gifts of caring, aware communities and neighborhoods."
—Frances Strickland, educational psychologist and former First Lady of Ohio
