"The general aim of the author in this book is to present a short history of The Brethren Church from the time of its origin in Schwarzenau, Germany, in the 1708 to the present time (1958). Not many histories have been written of our Brotherhood...We have tried to follow the main stream of Tunkerism as it has flowed from Germany to the United States, past the Ephrata movement, through the threefold division of 1881-1883, and on to the crisis that brought about the Ashland-Grace groups in The Brethren Church. This writer belongs to the National Fellowship of Brethren Churches and, of course, writes from that viewpoint. He seeks to present the facts faithfully and trusts that their treatment will be with profit to all readers." - Preface.
