Item description for Moving Toward The Mainstream by Donald R. Fitzkee...

This fascinating, easy-to-read book takes a rare look at the changes experienced by the Church of the Brethren, a group related to the Mennonites and Amish in many historic beliefs and practices. The book focuses on the cultural transformation of this unique religious group as they have moved toward the Protestant mainstream during the past 90 years. The writing is crisp, authoritative, and, at times, provocative. Discusses plain dress, leadership, nonresistance and peace, the temperance movement, politics, and identity crises. Historical black and white photos.

Reviews - What do customers think about Moving Toward The Mainstream?

Reads like a good novel  Feb 14, 2007
Yes, this is a history book, but it's so much more than that. Don Fitzkee writes with a style that makes the bare facts INTERESTING. While all the pertinent facts are contained here in detail, this is written by one who is obviously a great storyteller.

Since "oral tradition" plays such a huge part in the history of religion in America as well as the current climate of most congregations not only in the Church of the Brethren, but in all other denominations as well, this book is a jewel.

Every member of the Church of the Brethren should read it for sure, but those of other faith traditions will find it interesting and learn a great deal from the author's ability to tell the tale in such a way as well!

Part of the message here is: Aren't we swell for recognizing the error of our ways so soon? But more than that, it's about how we can hurt one another along the way if we are not very careful and considerate and PRAYERFUL. Fitzkee doesn't take sides, but simply and beautifully tells the story of what happened so that we can all learn and learn well.
Gaining an understanding of one's religious heritage  Aug 21, 2000
This well-researched and well-written book was a pleasant surprise for me. I was raised in the Church of the Brethren, but left it over 40 years ago. Now in reading this, I'm understanding and appreciating my heritage. The story of the Brethren, and the enormous changes they made in 100 years...the struggle to remain separate from the "world", yet to witness to the world...the questions of dress; of biblical interpretations; of love feasts and baptisms and church architecture...are well discussed and very interesting. I imagine all denominations have had to struggle with similar questions. I think this book would be enjoyed by anyone who is interested in Protestant church history. It is a MUST for all Church of the Brethren members!
