The essays in this book have been contributed in honour of Dr. H. H. Rowdon, a teacher of several generations of students at the London Bible College and a historian of the Brethren movement. The book includes reflections on the historiography of the Brethren, but it is their character and growth which form the principal focus. The writers make original contributions to national, regional or local histories and at the same time raise wider themes and issues through essays on topics such as revivalism in New Zealand and the Orkney Islands, or paternalism and missionary endeavor in Zambia. Leading features of the Brethren are discussed through papers on several seminal figures such as Anthony Norris Groves, John Eliot Howard and George Mller. Above all, the opportunities and problems represented by the worldwide growth of the movement are looked at with reference to a number of countries, among them Britain, Germany, Jamaica and Angola, or to individual congregations in places as diverse as Birmingham, Singapore and Tasmania. 'Over the whole world...'. concludes Prof. D. W. Bebbington in his contribution, 'Brethren played a distinctive role as evangelicals of the evangelicals.'
