Seeds of the Kingdom

Anna L. Peterson (Contributor Webpage)

This chapter reflects on the possibilities for reclaiming and rethinking progressive utopian thought in light of the experiences of both Amish and Salvadoran experiences in creating environmentally sustainable and socially just communities. The distinctive contributions of religion to these experiences are explored, as well as the significance of recent changes in the political left, in the nature of progressive social movements, and in religious and cultural life in the Americas.

Keywords:   Amish, El Salvador, political left, social movements, sustainability, utopianism
