I'd always assumed that Dr. Bronner's religious essays on the side of soap bottles was somehow related to an extremely right-wing Christian sect. To be honest, I'd never thought much of it.

Recently we have been moving toward more natural products in our home, and Jane purchased a gigantic bottle of Bronner's 18-in-1 soap. I started reading the bottle and noticed an interestingly singular amalgamation of various belief systems - Christianity, Judaism and references to authors such as Rudyard Kipling.
Bronner it seems has a much more fascinating background than one might anticipate.
Not surprisingly, a bit of research brings Bronner's antics directly through Chicago.
