|Author: ||Cox, Claude|
This volume contains papers presented at five "Restoration Heritage Day" meetings held in Barrie, Everton, Omagh, and Toronto (1986-1990). Includes papers from sixteen scholars representing all three branches of the Campbell-Stone movement. Deals with the Scotch Baptist influence in Ontario, Campbell's contributions to Ontario, significant leaders, congregational histories, church life, and developments within each wing of the movement.
" . . . a well-researched and well-written book, and Claude Cox has done a fine job in bringing the disparate parts together. . . . The book has a list of the 97 churches (all three wings of the movement) in Ontario, biographical sketches of the authors, a 15-page bibliography, and an extensive 20-page index. This book should be added to the "must be acquired" list for any library -- whether university or church or personal -- building a collection of materials about the Campbell-Stone restoration movement." - Dr. Bill J. Humble in Restoration Quarterly
"As a result of the focus on roots, many of the papers, particularly the biographies, contain descriptions of pioneer life in Ontario. For the modern period effective use is made of oral history. Life in the churches is described comprehensively, including orders of service and architectural diagrams. . . . One of the strengths of the volume is the annotated bibliography." - Rev. Philip G. A. Griffin-Allwood
