A scholarly yet readable history of the Brethren from the beginning in Europe to the present day in North America and around the globe.

Durnbaugh's comprehensive history of the Brethren from their seventeenth-century German origins to the present day, though packed with detail that could prove daunting to casual readers, is certainly accessible to a general audience. It will be of special interest not only to serious students of the historic peace churches but also to students of Protestant history--particularly as it has developed outside the Protestant "mainstream" in the U.S. The author is a sympathetic chronicler who weaves a readable narrative, with a critical edge starkly rendered in the final paragraph of the book. Although especially strong on the historic roots of the Brethren in a pietist movement whose influence has permeated Christianity, the book is also a clear-sighted appeal for a peace witness that enlarges its circle beyond the boundaries of the historic peace churches.
