Living Oracles

Read the New Testament translation edited by an influential leader of the Restoration movement and the Church of Christ. Alexander Campbell was convinced that the Authorized Version of the New Testament was rife with poor translation, bad theology, and awkward English. To address these problems, he compiled a new edition—a bold move in his time. Based on the earlier work of George Campbell, James MacKnight, and Phillip Doddridge, it went on to become the preferred version of the Campbell-Stone movement throughout the nineteenth century. Commonly known as The Living Oracles New Testament, this translation is hailed as the first of the modern versions. 

Alexander Campbell (1788–1866) was a leader in the Second Great Awakening in the 19th century. Educated at the University of Glasgow, Campbell immigrated to the United States in 1809. He edited and published two journals from his publishing company, The Christian Baptist and The Millennial Harbinger. He compiled and wrote essays and notes for The Living Oracles New Testament.
