The Doctrines of Grace in an Unexpected Place
Does God sovereignly elect some individuals for salvation while passing others by? Do human beings possess free will to embrace or reject the gospel?

Studies in Brethren History
BAHN has launched a series of books entitled Studies in Brethren History.

There is now also a subsidia series, and the first book in this series is Daniel J. Danielsen and the Congo: Missionary Campaigns and Atrocity Photographs by Oli Jacobsen. For an order form and information about this book, click here.
More information on these and other key books on Brethren history can be found on this website in Further reading. Several of these new academic histories of the Brethren appear in Paternoster Press's series, Studies in Evangelical History.
