A Future History

If Disciples are to have A Future History, then it is incumbent upon us to continue proclaiming the central tenets and doctrines of the Christian movement. When Barton W. Stone, Alexander Campbell, and other founders established the Christian Church (or Disciples), they had in mind certain principles that they believed were absolutely essential for the content and structure of the True Church. Now that we are in a new century and a new millennium, we must guard and preserve these essential elements if we are to remain true to the Stone-Campbell vision.

 

Central Casting

"Central Casting is my new book on communion – the heart of our faith. If you are like me, then the Lord’s Table becomes more precious to you with each passing year."
- Glenn Thomas Carson, president, Disciples of Christ Historical Society

"I recommend this book to all within the Stone-Campbell family as a primer for understanding our practice of the ‘Open Table’ as central to the Christian faith and to the church’s life. Dr. Carson sets forth biblical, historical and theological foundations of the practice of the weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Written in a style of an extended Communion meditation, this book offers fresh insights about a faith tradition and identity that have been born at the Table 'that beats steadily with the love of Christ."
- Robert Welsh, President, Council on Christian Unity
