Books about the 2x2 Church
At the turn of the twentieth century, William Irvine, a Scotsman, embarked on an experiment to restore the first century primitive New Testament ministry and church, using Matthew 10 as his model. The revolutionary movement caught on rapidly in the British Isles. Irvine's charismatic preaching inspired hundreds of young men and women to become itinerant, celibate, homeless missionaries traveling in pairs (2 by 2), sustained only by faith, freely spreading the nameless sect worldwide. Followers worshipped only in private homes.
Elizabeth was born and raised in a nameless and secretive worldwide cult that claims exclusive origin from the New Testament apostolic ministry and blatantly describes all other churches as 'false'. A fourth generation member, she professed faith at the age of sixteen and fully intended to remain there, even when she discovered that the system she believed in was based on a lie. A love story both human and divine, a journey from spiritual bondage to freedom in Christ; this confronting and deeply personal account gives an inside perspective into the mindset of cult members, and reveals the fear and trauma associated with being forced to investigate your own beliefs even if it could mean destroying the very foundations of everything you believe.
They were among the chosen few, the "Family of God." There was rarely cause to doubt what was widely accepted and taught. "The Way" was "from the beginning" and the "workers" making up its ministry were following the perfect example of Jesus, their elder brother. So much seemed perfect. The workers were sent two-by-two without salary, just as Jesus sent His first disciples. The meetings were held in homes, following the example of the New Testament Church. An appearance of godliness and unity was evident among the people. No denominational name or organization defined them.
