Book Review


Nearly all American religious historians among Disciples have noted, I think, the influences of Rowland Hill, Greville Ewing, the Haldane brothers, and both Glas and Sandeman. What they have not done is show the development of the broader transatlantic evangelical missions movement, and how the four themes of “mission, unity, primitivism, and millennialism” repeatedly showed up through the various missionary societies in London, and in Scotland and Ireland. I think this is Jamey’s main contribution – relating this story, and its connection to the Campbells, in such an organized and compelling way.
