Although the author tried to present the story of the Bruderhof/Arnoldleut (Arnold People) Hutterites, the information provided is no longer accurate. The whole Arnoldleut world has since been turned upside down and the movement is no longer part of the Hutterian Brethren Church. The book is good for research purposes only. Although well written, the author has not presented the "other side" or should I say say "other sides" of this very complex story. That will have to be found elsewhere. A good read, but severely dated.
