    I'm sure there are a lot of good books out there on church history, but the best I've come across is "The Pilgrim Church" by E.H. Broadbent. It is back in print after being out of circulation for several years.
    It's republished through:
    Gospel Folio Press
    P.O. Box 2041
    Grand Rapids, MI 49501-2041

    I have heard, second-hand, that Broadbent's book is sympathetic to the founders of Restorationist movement, men like Alexander Campbell or Barton Stone, whose theology is, shall we say, less than orthodox. Is this true?

    For clarity, I rechecked. Broadbent writes about people and events as a reporter would, or suppose to, objectively. I could find no such slant in favor of Campbell or Stone.Broadbent simply writes about their relationship, and yes they were "restorationists".
