"The Old Brethren" is a vivid portrait of a courageous community that dared to be different. Living entirely by the Bible "as it reads," and dressing and acting in ways that often made them seem peculiar to their more sophisticated countrymen, the Brethren of the mid-19th century cultivated a faith that was simple, but not simplistic. Their legacy endures, touching our lives and offering us wisdom for our own generation. (277pp. illus. index. Brethren Press, 2008.)
