800,000 Words

Eva Jean Wrather was Alexander Campbell's modern-day biographer. At her death in 2001, she had written over 800,000 words about Campbell, covering over 3,200 pages. Duane Cummins, past president of Bethany College and past Moderator of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), acted as her editor, before and after her death, to structure her research and writing into a three-volume work entitled Alexander Campbell: Adventurer in Freedom.

I received an email notice this week from Amazon saying that Volume 3 has now been published. Here's the ground covered in each:
Volume 1: the early years
Volume 2: the Christian Baptist years - 1823 to 1830
Volume 3: Campbell's later years
