The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement: Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Christian Churches/Churches of Christ, Churches of Christ

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.
Over ten years in the making, "The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement" offers for the first time 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 importantinformation throughout the volume. "The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell Movement" -- a standard reference work for religious, academic, public, and personal libraries everywhere.

Review: The Encyclopedia of the Stone-Campbell MovementUser Review - Christianbook.com
We have needed a book like this for a long time. Well done for the most part, but not enough information on people like Joseph Thomas, The White Pilgrim. He taught baptism by immersion after his own baptism by immersion the very next year after the pouring baptism performed by O Kelly.
The Stone-Campbell movement is not complete because there are many other churches of the Restoration Movement that have been unknown and untold for many years. Meltons Encyclopedia of American Religions (2009) has reminded many American and Canadian Disciples and Churches of Christ that some exist today. They are called the Evangelical Christian Church (Christian Disciples).They are found in Canada and the U.S., and continue to stayed true to their founders Barton Stone and Alexander Campbell.
