Illustrations bring the story to life and introduce the reader to some of the major figures in Brethren history, and the classified bibliography provides a startingpoint for those wishing to takes things further.Throughout, developments among Brethren are related to the wider religious world, providing a background for consideration of what it means to belong to an assembly.
