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.
A look inside a worldwide, supposedly nameless religion that meets in homes and rented venues, yet is almost unknown even to many
friends and relatives of its members. This book collects accounts of the varied experiences from many former members. Although it
has managed to elude public attention for most of its history, this group has been known by various names, both officially taken and
nicknames, that include: Two by Twos, the Testimony of Jesus, Meetings in the home, Assemblies of Christians, Christian Conventions,
The Truth, the Workers and Friends, the No-name church, the Way, Blackstockings, Die Namelosen, Kristna i Sverige,
Non-denominational meetings, Gospel meetings, Les Anonymes, Cooneyites, etc. Revised and expanded second edition.
