Product Description

This rich and challenging book explores the roots or ancestry of the Churches of Christ and others who stand as heirs to the Stone-Campbell movement of the early nineteenth century. It asks, "Where did we come from? How did we get this way? Why do we read the Bible the way we do? What has been the heart of our movement?" And it asks further,"What can we learn from those who have viewed restoration of apostolic Christianity in ways quite different from our own?"

The authors begin their story in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries---the age of Renaissance and Reformation. They isolate the stream of restorationist thought that arose in that age and then follow that stream through the Puritans, the early Baptists in America, the frenzy of pure beginnings in the early decades of American nationhood, and down to the Stone-Campbell movement.
