Abstract

Though interest in spiritual formation in the Stone Campbell Restoration Movement may appear to be a recent phenomenon, in actuality J. H. Garrison produced a substantial body of work designed to disciple new converts in 19thcentury churches. As editor of a religious paper and owner of a publishing company, Garrison used his resources and power to attend to the emerging formational needs of individuals and the movement. He understood spiritual formation to lead to a transformation equivalent to theosis.
