"We live in a society that has fallen among thieves -- spiritual thieves. .... We have fallen among those thieves on our road to the 21st century. And now we lie bleeding and semi-conscious in the ditch as businesspeople and politicians -- the priests and pharisees of our day -- pass by on the other side of the road. .... And the last thing we suspect is that the native people of this country will be the ones to help us, to bind our spiritual wounds and deliver us to a safe haven, to put us back on the healing journey. The native people are the despised Samaritans of our time. .... The outcasts, the despised ones, and yes, the enemy. They are the pagans who can't accept our individualistic, materialistic, 'progress'-oriented faith. .... But I have just returned from the first national convocation of native Canadian Anglicans, and I want to tell you -- need to tell you -- that I have never been so powerfully moved by an event in my life".

"The stories told in this book are true stories about people who refuse to separate economics from community. From loving one's neighbour as oneself. And from caring about the earth under one's feet. These days, the movement supported by people who want to build a neighbourly economy is often called 'community economic development'. (The same idea gets different names at different moments; in my father's youth, it was called 'the co-operative movement'.)" Intro. p. 3-4.
