From the Back Cover:

"A window on another world, a world as alien to us today as Conrad Beissel's was to fellow Pennsylvanians in the eighteenth century."-Pennsylvania History "A vivid picture of the founding, development, economy, calligraphy, printing, music, theology, inner tensions, and self-destruction of this holy experiment."-Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography

Review:

“Alderfer's story of Ephrata is essentially the biography of Conrad Beissel. . . . This small volume gives a vivid picture of the founding, development, economy, calligraphy, printing, music, theology, inner tensions, and self destruction of this holy experiment.”
—Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography
