How the Disciples Came Together in Early Ontario

An Account of the Origins of the Restoration Movement in Ontario

Sixty years after the publication of Reuben Butchart’s monumental work The Disciples of Christ in Canada since 1830, Edwin Broadus has expanded on that groundbreaking study to give us a fresh perspective on the origins of the Restoration Movement in Ontario. This remarkable book provides an illuminating synthesis of the contributions of the Baptists from Scotland and the radical Christian movements from New England and New York that combined to form the Ontario Disciples in 1843—the year of the first June meeting and the establishment of the “co-operation.” The result is a powerful narrative that will become a
standard text for early Canadian Restoration history.
