About the Author:

D. DUANE CUMMINS has been a visiting scholar in American history at Johns Hopkins University since 2002. He is a past president of Bethany College and the Division of Higher Education as well as past moderator of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and a former Darbeth-Whitten professor of American history at Oklahoma City University. He also served as interim president of Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University and of the Disciples of Christ Historical Society.

Review:

This work demonstrates that there is more to Campbell than the caricature that has often been portrayed in American religious history textbooks.   Dr. Todd Brenneman, Florida State University, (full review in  Religious Studies Review, Vol. 32, No. 1, Jan. 2006, p. 55)

Eva Jean Wrather devoted 70 years to chronicling the life of Alexander Campbell.  At the end, her encyclopedic biography of Campbell totaled more than 3200 pages and 800,000 words.  In the early 1990s, historian D. Duane Cummins began working with her to help bring her lifelong dream into print. They had edited seven of the 29 chapters when she died in 2001 at age 93. Those seven chapters compose volume one, covering Campbell's life from 1788 to 1823.Glenn Dromgoole, Bryan-College Station Eagle, July 17, 2005

This biography will serve the interests of Disciples of Christ members; it is a readable account of Campbell's life and bolsters his religious principles. Scholars will find the lack of footnotes and bibliography frustrating throwbacks to earlier standards of confessional religious biographies.  For them, Cummins' preface, which sets the book and author in context and politely explains the limits of the approach, will be the most redeeming feature.Dr. Philip Mulder, High Point University, (full review in The Journal of Southern History, pp. 929-930.
