Among the Early Evangelicals charts a new course for the Stone-Campbell Movement. While
many historians have concentrated on the movement’s American-only roots, Gorman suggests
that its earliest leaders were experienced participants in a transatlantic evangelical missionary
enterprise that utilized interdenominational cooperation based upon a primitive gospel to
evangelize the world and usher in the millennium.

Review:

“Readers of James Gorman’s illuminating Among the Early Evangelicals will learn a great deal not only about
the origins of the Stone-Campbell Movement, but also about the shaping of early evangelical Christianity in
Britain, Ireland, and America. I recommend Gorman’s book enthusiastically.”
— THOMAS S. KIDD, DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF HISTORY, BAYLOR UNIVERSITY


“Thoroughly informed by transatlantic studies and meticulous in his original research, James Gorman has
provided the most comprehensive account to date of the Campbells’ crucial interconnectedness with their
British evangelical precursors.”
— DOUGLAS A. FOSTER, PROFESSOR OF CHURCH HISTORY, DIRECTOR OF THE CENTER FOR RESTORATION STUDIES, ABILENE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY


“The work of Thomas and Alexander Campbell in creating a new religious tradition that developed into
the various branches of the Churches of Christ and Disciples has been seen as a specifically American
phenomenon. James Gorman shows that such an estimate is a mistake. On the contrary, their program was
rooted in the missions movement of the eighteenth century, culminating in the 1790s, that marked the whole
Evangelical world. By the 1790s, there was enthusiasm for discarding denominational obstacles to the spread
of the gospel in England, Ireland, and Scotland, and the Campbells imbibed that spirit. This book is a major
reinterpretation of the Campbell movement, but it is also more: a case-study that forms a powerful critique
of American religious exceptionalism.”
—DAVID BEBBINGTON, PROFESSOR OF HISTORY, UNIVERSITY OF STIRLING


“It’s not every day that a historian upsets the historiographical applecart with new perspectives that
essentially transform the way we understand a given subject, but that is exactly what James Gorman has
done. He has demonstrated that the transatlantic evangelical missions movement of the late eighteenth
century shaped the Campbells’ thinking on virtually all the key issues that defined the Stone-Campbell
tradition—restoration of a simple gospel, missions, the unity of all Christians, and the coming millennial age.”
—RICHARD T. HUGHES, AUTHOR, REVIVING THE ANCIENT FAITH: THE STORY OF CHURCHES OF CHRIST IN AMERICA
