Campbell-Owen Debate

13-21 April 1829. A landmark debate on the "Evidences for Christianity" brings excitement to Cincinnati, Ohio. The disputants who reportedly conducted themselves in the most gentlemanly manner were Robert Owen -- skeptic, socialist, and father of cooperativism -- and Alexander Campbell -- Christian reformer, scholar and co-founder of the the Stone-Campbell Movement. See the full text of the debate in Dr. Hans Rollman's website.
