Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Brenda Denzler was a member of the Worldwide Church of God. She was among those who began to question both doctrine and leadership and was in correspondence with others of a like mind. The collection documents her own journey and that of other dissident groups from the late seventies until the dissolution of the WCG. The materials in this collection were used in the writing of The lure of the edge: scientific passions, religious beliefs, and the pursuit of UFOs by Brenda Denzler. Berkeley: University of California Press, 2001; ISBN: 9780520224322
The Worldwide Church of God (WCG), with headquarters in Pasadena, California, was officially begun in Oregon in 1934 by Herbert W. Armstrong (1892-1986). It was originally called "The Radio Church of God" but changed its name to Worldwide Church of God in 1968.
