Restoration Appreciation: The Rich Legacy and Hopeful Future of the Stone-Campbell Movement seeks to recover the best tools from the movement’s past to build a stronger and more unified future. The book consists of twelve essays originally presented at Restoration Appreciation Week, an annual lectureship held on the campus of Great Lakes Christian College (GLCC) since 2016. Most of the twelve authors serve as faculty members or administrators at GLCC, but the list also includes representatives from other colleges associated with the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ as well as preachers from the same tradition. John C. Nugent, Professor of Bible and Theology at GLCC and author of numerous publications centering on theology and the Old Testament, collected the varied essays for publication, offered an essay of his own, and edited the volume.
