This little book grew out of a series of articles written for Jesus Radicals which in turn grew out of a primer presented at the annual Jesus Radicals conference. There are few resources available to folks exploring the intersection of Christianity and anarchism. This is strange, given the popularity of a number of people who described themselves as both: Dorothy Day, Jacques Ellul, Simone Weil, Leo Tolstoy, Peter Maurin, and more. This book is neither definitive nor adequate, but intends to spark conversation and help people dig deeper into the anarchic implications of the way of Jesus.
That Holy Anarchist emerges from a new generation of christian dissenters who are properly disillusioned, but not despairing... I hope its overview of biblical "retribalizing politics," modern anarchism, and the concluding proposal for "Christo-anarchism" will encourage and inspire younger activists (Christian, anarchist, or both) to move beyond sloganeering to a deeper, engaged conversation at this critical intersection of faith and politics." - from the foreword by Ched Myers
