The Brethren Encyclopedia - Volume 3Donald F. Durnbaugh, Editor.
Donald F. Durnbaugh, Editor. Volume 3, 724 pages, with photographs.Extensive and concentrated information is found in Volume 3, including a portfolio of relevant maps of North America and foreign countries, a detailed chronology (over 30 pages), and the most comprehensive bibliography ever compiled to cover all facets of the Brethren story (over 250 pages). Unique among denominational reference works is a section providing brief data (with bibliographical citations) of every ordained minister and every missionary within the Brethren bodies from 1708 to 1980. This list of thousands of names covers more than 300 pages (each in three columns) and has proven itself an essential tool for those doing family history.
In addition, each congregation (with its dates) is listed, along with a table of corresponding districts. A list of all Annual Meetings (Conferences) of the major Brethren bodies is provided, with dates, locations, and presiding officers.
The authoritative review journal Choice wrote about the reference set:
"A unique work, this encyclopedia provides comprehensive coverage for the first time of all aspects of Brethren life, practice, belief, and history. . . . Overall, an impressive work - careful planning and execution clearly show. A worthwhile addition to any religious reference section."
