Abilene Christian University and its Center for Restoration Studies hosted Restoration Day 2020 on September 7 to mark the anniversary of Thomas Campbell’s Declaration and Address and highlight the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement's historic emphasis on unity in the Body of Christ.
Restoration Day activities were held virtually and centered upon one of the most important figures in the movement’s history, Alexander Campbell. Dr. Douglas A. Foster, professor emeritus of church history at ACU and one of the foremost scholars of the Restoration Movement, recently completed the first critical biography of Alexander Campbell entitled A Life of Alexander Campbell. Dr. Foster share his wisdom via a recorded lecture on the topic of Campbell’s life and ministry, and as an added bonus, Dr. Foster spoke from behind Thomas Campbell’s pulpit from Ireland, currently housed at ACU’s Center for Restoration Studies.
