Brethren Society – The Transformation of a Peculiar People

On the subject of Brethren staying together in the face of continued worldliness in the denomination during the 1920’s –

“Brethren trusted Winger because he was part progressive and part conservative, and because he appealed to a common core of beliefs.”

“…most conservatives preferred compromising their agenda to leaving the family.”
