About-

A Taste of Heaven on Earth explores the spiritual foundation of the nineteenth-century utopian Oneida Community founded by John Humphrey Noyes, whose members sought purity of heart in all thoughts, words, and activities. Following graduation from college with honors, Noyes studied at two theological seminaries, opening his heart to receive God. He discovered the Holy Spirit as our ever-present teacher, revealing the wisdom and experiences of Christ, and that the purpose of human life is preparing the heart to hear this Internal Teacher and implementing its teachings. Spend pleasant hours with many of the nearly three hundred members of Noyes’s communities, people of all personalities and proclivities—how they loved and learned, worked and played, prayed and made music, and lived together with openness and harmony. All were married to all in this unique community, showing that a happy marriage may exist between two hundred and fifty as well as two. They practiced enlightened sexuality, learned emotional intelligence and spiritual self-examination, thrived with variety in work, enjoyed lifelong learning, and nurtured all children as their own. Most of all, they practiced openness to God, the only source of lasting joy and contentment.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“As an anthropologist, I relished the first-hand reports of Oneida community members discussing the conduct of daily life, often with each other, which makes it less self-conscious and thus more believable. I feel I understand what it was like to organize the laundry, care for the children, meet for meals, conduct self-criticism sessions, and many other tasks. Carol White has made a unique contribution to understanding the Oneida movement.”

—John Omohundro, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus, State University of New York



“Carol White takes a different and original tack. Her subject is the inspirational—as well as the intellectual—import of Noyes, and the spirit and heart of the Oneida Bible communists. . . . It is good history, good scholarship, and good Christianity made relevant to our times. . . . I strongly endorse Carol White’s book and urge its publication.”

—Anthony Wonderley, Curator of Collections and Interpretation (retired), Oneida Community Mansion House; author of Oneida Utopia
