The book offers the first scholarly treatment of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church (PBCC), one of the largest denominations within the Brethren movement that originated with John Nelson Darby and a 19th-century revival in the British Isles. The book discusses the Brethren movement in general, the schisms, the beliefs and daily life of the PBCC, and the controversies surrounding its practice of strict separation from non-members of the Church.
