Historians have recognized Alexander Campbell as the leading figure in an important American Christian reform movement, an advocate of Christian unity, and an educator, but his role as an apologist has been forgotten. This book focuses on Campbell s career as a defender of the faith, arguing that he was 'the most significant Christian apologist of America's antebellum period.' He contended with some of the most notable skeptics of his era, most famous among them Robert Owen, founder of New Harmony. Martin E. Marty says regarding Campbell that 'No clergyman of his time exerted himself more vigorously in combat with the infidels of the period.' This groundbreaking book supports this claim with indepth treatment of these debates.
