Footnotes to Disciples History


Disciples of Christ Historical Society (ed)


From the mid 1950s through the 1990s, the Disciples of Christ History Society printed short publications to remind its readers about the importance of the past. The series included reprints as well as new historical studies.

Footnotes to Disciples History collects this wide-ranging series into one volume:

  • Rice Haggard's An Address to the Different Religious Societies, on the sacred import of the Christian Name (1804)
  • John M. Imbler's Beyond Buffalo: Alexander Campbell on Education for Ministry (1992)
  • Report of the Proceedings of a General Meeting of Messengers from Thirteen Congregations (J.T. McVay and Alexander Campbell, 1834)
  • William A. Gerrards's Christian Unity, Our Heritage (1986)
  • Alexander Campbell's Lunenburg Letter (1837)
  • Eva Jean Wrather's Alexander Campbell and His Relevance for Today (1959)
  • Perry Gresham's The Broncho That Would Not Be Broken (1986)


With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and as part of the National Endowment of the Humanities Open Book program, the Abilene Christian University's ACU Press and Brown Library partnered with the Disciples of Christ Historical Society (DCHS) to digitize 25 important backlist titles relevant to Stone-Campbell tradition, theology, and church history. This open access version is hosted by Atla Open Press in furtherance of the purposes of the grant.
