Alexander Campbell used publishing to advance the restoration of the church. Had he lived today, how would he use media to move the restoration? What can we learn from Campbell’s use of media that can be applied to our use of media today as we advance our own understanding of restoration?

<ed.note>[Update: originally posted in 2006.] The remainder here… If you haven’t ever appreciated Campbell’s wonderous “The Third Epistle of Peter” I commend it — and assume he might have thought that Greg would have been safe to add a fifth observation in his article — running along the lines of Glyn Moody’s Presentation on the “Opens“</ed.note>
