Slavery represented the definitive moral issue that challenged Alexander Campbell and Barton Stone. With Campbell responding as an ecumenist and Stone as a moralist, each one left their tradition a legacy that informs how their later followers address issues of race, public life, and ecclesiology in a moral context. This article examines the views of Campbell and Stone concerning slavery and briefly traces their moral legacies in the work of Michael Kinnamon, Jack Cottrell, and John Mark Hicks.
