This history of the Restoration Movement looks at why it exists, where it has succeeded, and why it has sometimes failed to accomplish its lofty goals, the goal of Christian union and the goal of biblical authority.
“Everything that happens in the history of the Restoration Movement is the direct result of one or the other or both of these concerns. Sometimes these concerns work in tandem; sometimes they are polarized. But it I the ebb and flow of these twin concerns that has created the Restoration Movement. . . .”
