The definitive study of the Brethren movement in Britain and Ireland from its beginnings in the 1820s to the present day, with a primary focus on those gatherings known as Open Brethren. The overall aim is to provide a readable narrative of the movement’s development and distinctive ethos. The work explores where, when, how, and why assemblies grew and declined, and charts the development of a range of associated institutions. Although the main focus of the study is the Open Brethren, there is also material on the other streams of Brethren. This book is indispensable for anyone wanting to understand the history of the Brethren.
