PREFACE TO THIS CD PRODUCTION OF
This remarkable work has been added to the CD because of its
theological and historical value:
Alexander Campbell was a prime mover in the USA "Restoration
Movement". His person and works also profoundly influenced churches
of Christ in the UK and on churches which abandoned denominations,
particularly the Scotch Baptists. He also influence theological thought in
the west generally, particularly on the distinction between the Old and New
Covenants. This book played a significant part in that role.
With all due respect - as with other works on this CD
- its inclusion does not imply that the editor necessarily agrees with all
the views expressed.
Brother Alexander Campbell himself would emphatically
agree that the Word of God is the only authority on matters of faith. The
reader will benefit from perusing the advise given in the
publishers' preface to the UK edition
