John Thomas (1905-1871), b. London; d. Jersey City, NJ. Thomas began his career as a surgeon in London, and published several worthy treatises on the subject. By 1832 he was in America, became convinced of the truth of the Restoration Movement, and was encouraged to become an evangelist by Alexander Campbell. He soon developed disagreements with Campbell, and contended with him in public debates. Thomas was always questioning and testing orthodox beliefs with his own understanding of the Bible. He lectured publicly and wrote on theological topics. During the American Civil War he coined the term Christadelphian as the name for those following his teachings.
This book was first published in the 1860's.
