Abstract

This essay explores the author’s encounter with the biblical vision of the kingdom of God as embodied in the sixteenth-century Anabaptist movement; how he later discovered that same vision in his own tradition, the Churches of Christ (a cappella); and how that discovery reclaimed him for the Stone-Campbell tradition, converted him anew to the gospel of Christ, and shaped his published history of the Churches of Christ, Reviving the Ancient Faith: The Story of Churches of Christ in America.
