Bill Wiser

Bill Wiser is an Author, Pastor and Teacher. He’s one of the leaders in a Christian Community called Danthonia near Inverell in NSW, Australia. This community is a part of the Bruderhof, which was founded in 1920 in Germany by the Protestant theologian Eberhard Arnold. Appalled by mounting social injustice and the horrors of World War I, they sought answers in Jesus’ teachings, especially his Sermon on the Mount. Through this search they felt a call to radical discipleship: to give up everything for Christ. With a handful of like-minded seekers, they began to live in community of goods after the example of the first church in Jerusalem. Soon they adopted the name Bruderhof – literally, “place of brothers.”
