Editorial Reviews

Review

...helpful resources for understanding and referencing the D&A. Any student of the movement will find the context and meaning of the document made more clear. Moreover, anyone interested in Christian unity will find Thomas Campbell's model given a modern consideration that is thought-provoking and challenging.... (Stone-Campbell Journal)

The editors have assembled an impressive array of studies representing a variety of perspectives in order to assess the impact of Campbell's D&A on the elusive goal of Christian unity and its implications for the present. If not the final word on Campbell, it is unlikely we will see such a learned and comprehensive analysis of Campbell's works anytime soon. This work will serve as a basis for investigation into Campbell and the Disciples well into the future.... (William Atto H-Net: Humanities & Social Sciences Online)

The most thorough study of the Declaration and Address available...Indispensable certainly for the study of Campbell, but also for the entire early period of the Stone-Campbell movement. (Encounter)

No student of the Stone-Campbell Movement should ignore this book. It significantly advances our understanding of the Declaration and Address. Every student of ecumenism should read it because it studies one of the first and primary documents of ecumenical thought in American Christianity. While each essay contributes something valuable, several are particularly significant. . . . Within the framework of an already/not yet eschatology, we seek the present experience of unity and purity but with the confession that we have not yet fully experienced what God intends. Perhaps this volume will not only contribute to the self-understanding of the Stone-Campbell Movement, but it will also renew the impetus for the search for unity and purity in the church. (John Mark Hicks Restoration Quarterly)

...a useful tool... (Australian Christian)

...enlightening and interesting...this text will bear great fruit for those who wish to understand the roots of the Stone-Campbell movement as a unity movement. (Lexington Theological Quarterly)

If you are interested in the roots of the so-called Stone-Campbell (or Restoration) Movement, you must read this book. I've read TC's D&A at least a dozen times and have studied it for decades, but by the time I finished this book, I was embarrassed at what I did not know and (in fact) had never considered. This is a reference book you will really appreciate.
