This chapter examines the history of Koinonia Farm, an interracial Christian farming community and its founders, Clarence and Florence Jordan. It examines Jordan’s theological commitments and upbringing, the founding of Koinonia Farm, its mission and work, and its persecution in the 1950s. The chapter concludes with an examination of Jordan’s Cottonpatch Gospels, which offer insight into Koinonia Farm’s radical orthodoxy in terms of race relations in the South.
