Reviews - What do customers think about Union in Truth: An Interpretive History of the Restoration Movement?

Must read history  Apr 18, 2004
This book is important for those that want to know the history of the Churches of Christ and Christian Churches. I was never taught the history of my church when I was growing up, this is unlike other denominations that have classes in the beliefs of their church. I am very thankful for this book, it has explained a lot to me that I didn't know about before. It's only drawback is that it is quite comlex in that it covers a large time frame and numerous individuals.
A reader-friendly insider's look at the Restoration Movement  Mar 17, 2004
James B. North is a beloved professor & scholar at CBS. We used this book as a textbook in our "Restoration History" class at Ozark Christian College. There are many positive things to be said about this book. It is well written, expertly researched, and is obviously the result of the love and passion the author has for the brotherhood.
A simple critique would be this: #1), the author never considers objections to the philosophical principles which undergirded the movement. This would seem necessary since this is an interpretive history. #2), There is an "pollyanna-like" rose-colored look at the presuppositions & theological positions of the movement, and North does not give a fair hearing (or a hearing at all) to other traditions outside of our own (such as Calvinism or liberalism). Because the author comes from within our Movement, he gives the impression in his writing that nothing bad could be the consequence of the Movement. I am sure the author has considered and weighed these issues, but it is unfortunate that nothing of the sort is reflected in this writing.
Readable, but slanted  Feb 26, 2004
Granted, this work, like all of North's, is extremely readable. You do not require a vast amount of knowledge on the subject before starting this book. However, there are several instances where a clearly conversative agenda is endorsed. The most noteworthy example is the presentation of what North labels "theological liberals". Efforts are clearly taken to persuade people against these individuals. This conversative agenda is also apparent in the lack of information on the more liberal wings of the Restoration Movement. A history book such as this should not be this slanted. Three stars for the simple reason that it is readable.
The "must read" history of the Restoration Movement  May 24, 1999
The Restoration Movement, which saw its beginning in the early 19th century, was one of the fastest growing religious movements ever witnessed on the North American continent. Although its appeal for "the unity of all believers based on the authority of scripture" still resonates today, the movement faltered and stagnated. This book explains why in a clear way.
