Foster discusses Alexander Campbell’s New Testament

Join Dr. Doug Foster on Monday, Sept. 3 at 11:30 a.m. in the Adams Center for a presentation on Alexander Campbell’s version of the New Testament first published in 1826, and his translation of Acts for the American Bible Union in 1858. Foster will explore how Campbell’s work contributed to the wave of American Bible translations in the 19th century, the circumstances prompting the vicious and unrelenting criticism of his work from almost every Christian group, and the implications of Campbell’s work on the way we look at the use of the Bible today.
