More Twice Born Men is comprised of century-old stories of men who had their lives changed so profoundly and so dramatically that the original book was reprinted 11 times.

More Twice Born Men is also about a man, Frank Buchman, who was first and foremost a teacher. Buchman could change the lives of students and scholars in the course of a single conversation; changing those lives so profoundly and persuasively that the world was in disbelief. Buchman started a movement that reached the shores of America and lives today in the form of many 12-step programs. While the original movement was founded on Christianity, its principles and ideas moved beyond religion and Christianity into a more generic spiritual movement.

"More Twice-Born Men" by Harold Begbie, first published in the early 20th century, is a sequel to his earlier work "Twice-Born Men." The book presents a series of biographical sketches focusing on the transformative experiences of individuals who underwent dramatic personal conversions through their involvement with the Oxford Group. This Christian organization emphasized the necessity of personal spiritual renewal as a means to effect societal change.

The key elements of the book include:

1. Personal Stories of Conversion: Each chapter details the life and experiences of a different individual, describing their struggles with various moral and social issues before encountering the teachings of the Oxford Group.

2. Role of the Oxford Group: Begbie illustrates how the teachings and practices of the Oxford Group, such as personal honesty, restitution, guidance from God, and evangelism, played a crucial role in these transformations.

3. Themes of Redemption and Change: The narratives focus on themes of redemption, showcasing how individuals can change their lives drastically if they fully embrace the Oxford Group’s principles. These stories serve as both inspirational accounts and testimonials to the effectiveness of the group's methods.

4. Evangelical and Moral Overtones: Consistent with the Oxford Group's Christian evangelical approach, the book emphasizes moral regeneration as the path to personal and social improvement.

"More Twice-Born Men" is considered an important work for understanding the kind of personal transformation narratives that were central to the Oxford Group’s appeal and methods. The book not only offers insights into the spiritual and practical workings of the Oxford Group but also reflects the broader early 20th-century context of evangelical Christian movements aiming to address social ills through individual change.
