Alexander Mack Jr.

Brethren Journal Association announces publication of “The Life and Influence of Alexander Mack Jr.: Pietist and Anabaptist Intersections in Pennsylvania” featuring most of the papers presented at the Young Center Conference on Alexander Mack Jr. in 2012.

  Even though Alexander (Sander) Mack Jr. wrote many letters and poems, very little has been written about him or about what we can learn from his writing. Sander Mack was the son of Alexander Mack, founder of the Brethren movement, and a leader of the Brethren in the American colonies in the mid-1700s.

This special 170-page expanded edition of “Brethren Life and Thought” is Vol. 58, No. 1, Spring 2013. It should be in the mail to members and subscribers the week of June 2. Single copies will be available to purchase from the Brethren Life and Thought office at Bethany Seminary in Richmond, Ind., or from Brethren Press, the Young Center at Elizabethtown (Pa.) College, and the Brethren Heritage Center in Brookville, OH. To subscribe to the journal go to www.bethanyseminary.edu/blt .
