Join us on Thursday, Feb. 22 for two lectures presented by Dr. James Gorman (’08), author of Among the Early Evangelicals (ACU Press). Dr. Gorman will discuss the book, which explores the ways that the earliest leaders of the Stone Campbell Movement were experienced participants in a transatlantic missionary network that utilized interdenominational cooperation based upon the primitive gospel.

Join us from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Adams Center for a talk titled, “Five Reasons Historians Have Portrayed the Stone-Campbell Movement as Uniquely American…and Why That’s Wrong.”

Gorman will also speak from 4-5:30 p.m. at Chapel on the Hill for, “‘This Revival Cut the Bonds of Many Poor Slaves’: Evangelical Revivalism, Race Relations, and Christian Unity in the Early National Era.” A reception will follow. Please RSVP online or by phone at 325-674-2340.
