A 200 Year Celebration: The Declaration and Address as an Evangelistic Action Place for the End Times

Description: Lecture given Wednesday, September 23, 2009, 4:00 PM at Abilene Christian University: "In 1809, Thomas Campbell produced a document that has cast a long shadow over the Stone-Campbell Movement.

We will comment upon the literary composition and religious soils of this influential agenda, especially in Pennsylvania and Ireland, as reflected in recent literature; the role of scripture and its interpretation in accomplishing Campbell's goals; the eschatological unfolding of his vision; and important theological assumptions."
