Eva Jean Wrather (1908-2001) spent most of her adult lifetime writing a biography of Alexander Campbell, founder of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the only Protestant denomination to spring from American soil. Shortly before Wrather’s death, the manuscript totaled 800,000 words or 3,254 pages.

Historian D. Duane Cummins worked with her until her death and then afterwards to craft a three-volume work comprising Campbell’s lifetime of theological doctrine and literary writing.

Volume three of this work bears Cummins’ organization and structure, along with some of his own research, preserving as much as possible Wrather’s inimitable writing style.
This is a joint project of the Disciples of Christ Historical Society and Texas Christian Univerisity Press.
