Description

Excerpt from The Early Relation and Separation of Baptists and Disciples: A Dissertation Submitted to the Faculty of the Graduate Divinity School in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Department of Church History) Every religious movement owes its origin to some leading person or persons; Protestantism to Luther and Zwingli, Methodism to Wesley. So the Disciples of Christ owe their origin to the joint thought and labors of two men, Thomas and Alexander Campbell, father and son. Various phases and tendencies of a religious move ment may be traceable to conditions back of its accredited founder, as many phases of Protestantism to the reformers before the reforma tion, and many tendencies in Methodism to the Moravians and European Pietists. So there are discernible back of the Campbells, tendencies in religious thought which became dominant forces in their movement. No religious movement arises out of the earth or comes down from heaven regardless of past or present conditions. Single lives combine in themselves scattered tendencies, either hidden or apparent, and concentrate them into a historic movement. It takes then a distinct and traceable course and receives a distinguishing name. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
