Product Description

With roots in British and American endeavors to restore apostolic Christianity, the Stone-Campbell Movement drew its inspiration from the independent efforts of nineteenth-century religious reformers Barton W. Stone and the father-son team of Thomas and Alexander Campbell. The union of these two movements in the 1830s and the growth of the new body thrust it into a place of significance in early nineteenth-century America, and it quickly spread to other parts of the English-speaking world.

From its beginnings the Movement has developed into one of the most vital and diverse Christian traditions in the world. Today it encompasses three major American communions - Churches of Christ, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and Christian Churches/Churches of Christ - as well as united churches in several other countries.

Reprinted in a paperback edition, The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement offers a sweeping historical and theological treatment of this complex, vibrant global communion. Written by more than 300 contributors, this major reference work contains over 700 original articles covering all of the significant individuals, events, places, and theological tenets that have shaped the Movement. Much more than simply a historical dictionary, this volume also constitutes an interpretive work reflecting historical consensus among Stone-Campbell scholars, even as it attempts to present a fair, representative picture of the rich heritage that is the Stone-Campbell Movement.

Scores of photographs and illustrations (many quite rare) enrich and enliven the text, and an extensive, carefully prepared index facilitates ready access to important information throughout the volume.

Endorsements

Two hundred years ago Barton W. Stone, Thomas and Alexander Campbell, and their many associates participated in a movement to unite Christians, restore faith and practice of New Testament Christianity, promote mission, and advance spiritual maturity. That endeavor resulted in millions of adherents now spread throughout the world. In entries ranging from short notes to extended treatises, the editors and three hundred competent contributors to this encyclopedia give balanced and comprehensive attention to the contemporary expressions of the Stone-Campbell Movement – the Churches of Christ, Christian Churches/Churches of Christ, and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). They have produced a scholarly, authoritative, and readable text that gives historical and theological information important to members of these churches and to all those interested in modern church history.
-Everett Ferguson,
Abilene Christian University

This encyclopedia is as usefully informative as it is carefully crafted. America’s vigorous Restorationist churches, personalities, publications, institutions of higher learning, and associations have long needed a comprehensive and discerning interpretive guide. This volume meets that need splendidly.
-Mark A. Noll,
Wheaton College

Historians of American religion have long puzzled over the various and confusing congeries of the Stone-Campbell Movement. This remarkable volume provides an indispensable guide to understanding this important tradition.
