‘It is impossible to understand the patterns of theological and ecclesiastical change without attention to the cultural context’, writes Professor David Bebbington in this book. The Brethren movement has often been associated with a hostile attitude to culture, but the chapters in this book also show that statements about the relationship of the movement to culture must be more finely nuanced. The second part of the book takes up this theme and offers pioneering studies of hymns and hymn books, individuals such as George Müller and Robert Rendall, and how the tensions of the mid-twentieth century affected spirituality.
