Barton Warren Stone: An American Religious Movement.
Ulrey, Evan
This biographical sketch of Barton Warren Stone, an early American advocate of the Restoration Movement, describes and interprets some of the innate and environmental factors that must have been to a large measure responsible for his leadership of what has been called the largest indigenous American religious movement. It details some of the political, philosophic, and theological contexts of the early eighteenth century in which Stone's movement developed. It describes Stone as one who had a reputation among his contemporaries as a scholar, teacher, theologian, editor, writer, and evangelist whose chief claim to uniqueness as a religious leader lay in his definition and interpretation of the New Testament basis of Christian unity and fellowship. It describes the thesis of Christian unity as being the major emphasis of Stone's life and work. (TJ)
