Todd Scoles (pictured), author of the recently-released BMH book, Restoring the Household, will be a panelist when the Brethren Heritage Center in Brookville, Ohio looks at the 300th anniversary of the Brethren movement. The event will be held at 7 p.m., Saturday, November 8, at the Brethren Heritage Center and Brookside Community Center, 428 Wolf Creek Street.
A person from each of the larger Brethren groups will speak about that specific group and will answer questions.
Restoring the Household presents a summary of church history and the theological/political forces leading up to the Alexander Mack baptism in the Eder River of Germany in 1708, which is generally considered the starting-point of the Brethren movement. He also includes a discussion of the Brethren ordinances of trine immersion baptism and threefold communion, and concludes with an insightful look at some of the dynamics surrounding the founding of Grace Theological Seminary and the Grace Brethren movement in the late 1930s.
