The Things Which Become Sound Doctrine: The Life of Aaron M. Shank offers a window into the rise and development of several conservative Mennonite groups in southeastern Pennsylvania in the mid- to late-twentieth century. Deeply influenced by the book’s subject, the author offers a historical account of Aaron M. Shank (1915-2003), whose role was instrumental in shaping the origin and growth of the Eastern Pennsylvania Mennonite Church (EPMC), which came from Lancaster Mennonite Conference (LMC) in 1968, and the Pilgrim Mennonite Conference (PMC), which came from EPMC in 1992.
