CHARIS lecture on Alexander Campbell’s New Testament
September 3, 11:30 a.m | Adams Center
Join Dr. Doug Foster for a presentation on Alexander Campbell’s new version of the New Testament first published in 1826, and his translation of Acts of the American Bible Union in 1858. How did Campbell’s work contribute to the wave of American Bible translations in the nineteenth century? What prompted the vicious and unrelenting criticism of his work from almost every Christian group – to the point of his threatening legal action for libel? What implications does Campbell’s work have for the way we look at and use the Bible today?
