While his son is more well-known, Thomas Campbell is an important figure in the movement to restore Christianity to the way it was in the Bible.  His famous Declaration and Address is still relevant 200 years later.


Alexander Campbell and Politics (Presented by Mark McWhorter)
He was known as a preacher, writer, editor, and debater, but Alexander Campbell was also involved in politics.  He was among the members of the Virginia constitutional convention, and was known by multiple presidents of the United States.


James A. Garfield (Presented by Mark McWhorter)
Whether you agreed with his politics or not, you had to respect him.  James Garfield was a man who stayed true to his convictions, and everyone knew that he could be counted on.  What many today don’t know is that he was also a preacher and an elder in the church.
