Alexander Campbell was, by every estimation, a man of great power and influence. He had a thirst for knowledge, and a desire to follow only what he could find and prove from the holy Scriptures.
Tracing Campbell’s history from a child in Ireland, to his interaction with the Independent churches in Scotland, and through his years as a famous preacher, writer, editor, and debater, Alexander Campbell: Leader of the Great Reformation of the Nineteenth Century is a succinct overview of the life and work of this great man of God.
from the Introduction:
The present volume is a contribution to a larger knowledge of Mr. Campbell and his times. Few have leisure or opportunity to read Richardson’s two volumes, and, moreover, much may now be added to the subject which was not then accessible. This book ought to result in a largely increased acquaintance with the beginnings of the movement, and help many among the Disciples of Christ to vindicate afresh the position which they occupy among the religious forces of the time.
