Her work, which she was revising when she died, is a literary biography, without scholarly documentation. Ms. Wrather was periodically drawn from work on the manuscript by the needs of the Disciples of Christ Historical Society, of which she was the only female founder. Work walk also delayed when publishers at first interested in the project turned it down, at least once because of its enormous length.

Volume One traces Campbell's physical journey from scotland to America and his spiritual journey, as he left behind the stern Calvinism of his youth and developed his own theology of a loving and kind God.

Inhaltsangabe: Eva Jean Wrather devoted seventy years to writing an 800,000-word biography of Alexander Campbell, the Scots-born founder of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the only Protestant denomination to originate in the United States. Her work, which she was still revising when she died, is a literary biography, without scholarly documentation. Ms. Wrather was periodically drawn from work on the manuscript by the needs of the Disciples of Christ Historical Society, of which she was the only female founder. Work was also delayed when publishers at first interested in the project turned it down, at least once because of its enormous length. Believing in the importance and integrity of what she had written, Eva Jean Wrather refused to shorten the work or incorporate modern scholarship, including punctuation and spelling. In the early 1990s, historian and author D. Duane Cummins was asked by the Disciples of Christ Historical Society to assist Ms. Wrather in revising her manuscript. Together, they revised the first seven chapters before the author's health failed. These chapters comprise Volume One. Publication of future volumes is tentatively scheduled. Volume One traces Campbell's physical journey from Scotland to America and his spiritual journey, as he left behind the stern Calvinism of his youth and developed his own theology of a loving and kind God. A project of TCU Press and the Disciples of Christ Historical Society.

Inhaltsangabe: Eva Jean Wrather devoted seventy years to writing an 800,000-word biography of Alexander Campbell, founder of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a monumental literary biography described by D. Duane Cummins as a creative and skillful blend of history and superb literary writing skills.

In the early 1990s, Cummins was asked to assist Ms. Wrather in revising her manuscript. Their work together makes up Volume One of Campbell?s biography, (TCU Press, 2005).

Volume Two follows Campbell?s life from 1823–1830, years filled with the storm of opinions in the pages of his successful magazine, The Christian Baptist, which won mixed hostility and support in Baptist and Presbyterian communities. Wrather records Campbell?s experience as a politician and delegate to the Virginia Constitutional Convention in 1829, where Campbell brushed shoulders with some of America?s most famous politicians and rhetoricians. Wrather believed these years were a crucial chapter in Campbell?s life, confirming his power as a thinker, speaker and writer.
